What does the blue dot mean on text messages?

When you see a blue dot on your phone's screen, it means that someone has sent you a text message. The blue dot indicates the number of messages in your inbox and how many are new. When you open a text message, the blue dot will disappear and the new messages will be at the top of your inbox. If there are no new messages, the blue dot will stay until you either delete or reply to a message.

What did I do to cause the blue dot to appear on my text messages?

If you are seeing a blue dot on your text messages, it could mean that there is an issue with your phone. The blue dot may appear when you are trying to send a message, or when the message is being sent but hasn't been delivered yet. If the blue dot appears frequently, it might be indicative of an issue with your phone's messaging service. You can try contacting your carrier or Apple for help resolving the problem.

Is there a way to remove the blue dot from my text messages permanently?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the blue dot may mean different things to different people. However, some possible explanations for why a blue dot might be present in a text message include:

  1. The sender was accidentally sent the message before it had been sent to the recipient.
  2. The sender has disabled text message notifications for the recipient, or vice versa.
  3. The recipient's phone is out of battery power and/or they have turned off text message notifications.
  4. The sender and recipient are not connected to each other via text messaging (for example, if one person is offline or their phone is turned off).

Why are there two dots next to some of my text messages?

The blue dot on a text message indicates that the message has been sent. If you see two dots next to a text message, it means that the recipient has read and responded to the message but hasn't sent back yet. Sometimes, when you're sending multiple messages in quick succession, the second dot may be present because one of the messages was sent before the first one was ready. Finally, if you send a text message and then get pulled away from your phone for a few minutes and come back to find that it's already been sent, chances are good that you saw the two-dotted notification and just didn't have time to respond.

What's the difference between a single blue dot and double blue dots next to a text message?

Does having theblue dot turned off for texts mean I won't see other notifications like read receipts?

The blue dot on a text message means that the sender has not yet read or responded to your message. If you want to be sure that your message will be received, turn on the blue dot. If you don't see the blue dot and receive messages without it, there may be an issue with your phone or service.

Am I able to customize what causes the double blue dots notification beside a message thread in iOS 13?

If you're seeing the blue dot notification beside a message thread in iOS 13, it means that there is an issue with that particular conversation. You can't customize what causes this notification, but you can still view and respond to the messages in that thread.

13 Can you explain what “Send as SMS” under Messages settings does, and why would someone want that option enabled or disabled?

When you send a text message using the “Send as SMS” option, your phone will use your carrier's texting service instead of the default messaging app. This can be useful if you want to avoid data charges or if your messaging app doesn't have a good support for sending texts.

However, some people may want this feature disabled because it can make it harder to track who is texting you and when. If someone sends you a text message using the Send as SMS feature, it will show up as a blue dot in your Messages conversation list rather than the usual green dot.
