Read receipt

Can I turn off the read receipt for just one contact? Is it all or nothing?

Greetings @okteacher!


We can help you with that. If you're using AT&T Advanced Messaging, it's not possible to disable Read Receipt for a single contact. However, many devices will allow users to block a contact from sending text messages.


Use AT&T Device Support tool to find out how to do just that. Simply select your device's make and model, then Calling & contacts, and finally Block Calls, and follow the steps as presented.


Hope this info helps.
