There is no way to acknowledge that an SMS has been received.

If I remember correctly this is not part of the SMS protocol. However the MMS protocol has support for delivery reports.

Sorry but I was wrong. The SMS protocol has support for delivery reports. However the problem is that not all network has support for this.

Thanks can you elaborate more on this matter, for instance in a network with support for this, how would we send a sms in java me and request for a delivery report ?

User manually sets delivery confirmation. On Nokia phone go to Messaging > Message settings > Text messages >Delivery reports and select 'Yes.' Delivery confirmation receipt only means that the message has been receipt at the Short Message Service Center (SMSC) not the the recipient's phone. I don't know of any technology that allows the recipient's to send a confirmation (would raise privacy stink.)
