I have removed SMS app by rooting my android mobile. I tried to send SMS to that device and guess what? Of course, I did not received any SMS because I had removed SMS app completely by rooting but at the same time my second phone from which I had sent SMS received "delivered" report !!! How come?

Hi, i believe that the messages app isn't responsible for the delivery reports process. It is only responsible for showing the sms and sending. I have a messages service app in my phone so i think it is the one responsible for that, or there is another reason. For now I'm still searching and i will try some tinkering in my phone until i achieve a result and the I'll post it on XDA

Hi,
In some countries, if you send sms to landline phone via cellphone, you will receive delivery report!

This process is transparent to the mobile user. If there is no error or failure, the recipient mobile phone sends back a positive delivery report to the SMS center. Otherwise it sends back a negative delivery report to the SMS center.

If the sender requested a status report earlier, the SMS center sends a status report to the sender when it receives the message delivery report from the recipient.

Once your phone receives the SMS, you can decide whether to block it. In case you wanna block it, the application has to simply send a Storage full / Message format not supported Error to the message station instead of normal status.

There's always a way guys

So sending a failure delivery report to the SMS center will also send a failure delivery report to the recipient mobile phone? This would not be a complete solution to prevent delivery report but a way to prevent a successful delivery report. The sender could still track if the device is connected to the network.
If I remember correctly, I noticed that when some mobile network operators are overwhelmed with SMS, for example at the time of New Year's Eve in France, SMS can be received (sometimes delayed) but no delivery report is sent.
Also, if someone sends an SMS to a mobile phone that is powered off or in flight mode for several days, the SMS may never be delivered. I had this kind of issue with Lycamobile Germany and sometimes the SMS was delayed for several hours if the mobile phone was just powered off or in flight mode for a few minutes while the SMS was sent.
