Samsung Patents SMS Recall

Article Comments  9  

Jun 21, 2005, 5:33 PM   by (staff)

Samsung has been awarded a patent for a method of deleting a sent SMS off a recipient's phone. The patent is for a new technology that would be integrated in to phones' messaging clients. Should a user regret having sent an SMS, he can send a delete message to the recipient's phone. If both phones have the recall technology and the message has not yet been read, the message will be deleted from the phone's memory. Samsung has not yet announced any phones with SMS recall built in.

Great, No More "Drunk Texting!"

Sweet, this should alleviate a major problem for people like me, sending text messages to ex's at all hours of the night when out partying and hammered! Laughing
The question is do the ex's every respond? Wink

Not "patented"

The full article cites to a Samsung published patent application - not to an issued US Patent. The Samsung patent application, by itself, provides no patent protection - it is just an application for a patent.

Let's wait and see, after examination by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, if a patent issues, and what the scope of the claims are (the claims define the breadth of the invention).

Thus, the Samsung concept is not yet "patented" as the article states.

Good Idea?

Our corporate email client (via Outlook) has a similar feature... except the message can be pulled back whether or not it has been read. I wonder how this will impact the carriers billing system. Will the recalled message be seen as never sent or will the recall command be viewed as a standard text messaging charge? The execution should be interesting Very Happy
What will a carrier do? As much as it can to screw the consumer.

You'll be charged for the original SMS and then a second time for the recall SMS.
