Since the last update, my read receipts only say sending as SMS via text even if I send a picture. I do not get the sending, delivered or read receipt when sending to another Verizon number.

We can understand how that is a convenient feature. What messaging application are you using? BrittanyC_VZW

For me, this just started happening on a Samsung Galaxy S9+ with the Messages app that came on the phone.
