Is there any way to see when a text message has been read by the recipient on a galaxy s2 phone and where would I turn that on??? It shows that it has been sent but I need to see when it was read.

What you are asking is not possible. The closest thing to it would be a "delivery report", which at least tells you the message was delivered to your addressee (it can't tell you whether it was read):

Go to SMS settings and in menu related to SMS activate the request delivery report.

    This will only tell him that the other persons device has received the text but not when or if it was read.

  • @JMR that comment should be part of your answer :) You can always edit your posts to improve, which I've done for you this time – so it's clear to the reader what you suggest (note: the downvote isn't mine).
