Patent pending for deleting embarrassing SMS's
[Via Cellular News]
Deleting those embarrassing SMS's… It was about time some took care of this. Samsung has been awarded a patent (US2005124360) on a method of sending an SMS to a handset then being able to later send a "delete" command to the same phone to erase the SMS from the handset memory. The patent is apparently aimed at people who mass broadcast messages and accidentally include incorrect people in the mailing list. Unfortunately, read messages can’t be deleted. Oh well, this remains a problem to be solved.
