an option, Mark it. To deselect an option, Unmark it.

Urgent: Sets the priority level of your message to “urgent”. Urgent
message or a similar notification will appear on the screen of the

will send you a delivery note. If you address the message to more than
one recipient, you will receive a separate delivery note for each recipient.

Callback no.: Allows you to enter a phone number at which the
recipient can call you.

After you mark and unmark the options, press Back. The message Save
appears. To accept the changes that you made to the settings,
press Yes. To discard the changes, press No.

Message delivery notification

When you send a message, you can ask to be notified when the message
is received. This notification is called a delivery note. When the recipient
gets your message, the network sends you a delivery note. You will receive
a separate delivery note for each recipient.

Send and receive text messages

Note: When sending messages via the SMS network service, your
phone may display the words “Message Sent”. This is an indication
that the message has been sent by your phone to the message center
number programmed into your phone. This is not an indication that
the message has been received at the intended destination. For more
details about SMS, check with your service provider.

Urgent mobile messages

You can assign an urgent priority level to a mobile message. When you
receive an urgent mobile message, Urgent appears in the message header.
When you send an urgent mobile message, a similar notification appears
on the recipient’s phone or other device if it supports this feature.
