Oh, i believed that if your phone didn't send the receipt return (or
whatever it's called) then the provider would have assumed that you can't
read it.

I have 10 binary messages in my inbox, most of them received the same day, a
few days ago, and i received only one sms notification so far.. I'll ask
someone with mms-capable phone to send me a test.
