Mobile Enhanced SMS on Pixel 3a - Beware SMS delivery reporting may be preset on phone.
First 2 bills for my wife and I using our Google Pixel 3a and hers had a load of Mobile Enhanced SMS and mine didn't - on her phone went into settings in SMS Messages App / Advanced and turned off "Get SMS delivery reports".
Problem solved and 5 cents a message saved.
Why her phone was preset and mine wasn't is a mystery but its all solved now.
My Android Samsung software was updated yesterday and this 5 cents per message "delivery reports" was switched on again. I turned it off under message settings, more settings, text messages then used the slider. It's a nice little earner for Telstra!
