By intercepting calls to/from CommCenter, his library modifies outgoing SMS headers (adding the delivery report flag), and captures incoming SMS reports (displaying them either as a flash message, a regular sms message, or a simple ‘tick’ mark).
All the details (including source) are up on the google code site. Installation is simple, just add

iPhoneDelivery package, and robert is your relative.
How could apple develop things like MMS, vCard support, and even peer-to-peer connections for the iPhone, and yet omit gaping holes like SMS delivery report support? I’m starting to think that SMS delivery reports don’t work in Cupertino.
Edit (July 2009): If you’re interested in getting this feature added to the iPhone OS, please vote for it here: Please Add Delivery Reports to the iPhone.
Update (October 2009): No more silliness with prefixes needed – if you’ve a jailbroken phone, you can now get genuine delivery reports. More info here.
