Up to now there is only a sending confirmation for SMS (Short Message Service) and a confirmation that the message has arrived the mobile phone of the person to whom it was sent. But there is no possibi- lity to be informed that the message has been read by the receiver which is more important for the sender of the message. The idea is to create a new feature which allows to send and to receive reading confirmations for SMS. So, the SMS exchange becomes a real communicati- on between persons with this feature which optimizes the quality and reliability of mobile communication services.
