    All you will get is delivery confirmation, a check mark to non-Verizon customers or a check mark with a "D" to Verizon customers. You will not get a "read" option.

    I don't think the SMS text message protocol supports the idea of read confirmations. The best you can do is get feedback that the destination phone has received the message (check+D), and that seems to be only for VZW <-> VZW messages.
