    What we want to do now is scroll all the way to the bottom where it says "Display message on screen"
    .
    What this option does is it allows the phone to display a message on-screen to tell you if a message has been sent or if there's a failure.

    We can press down on this option, and there are four options here
    .
    A message will come up on screen and it will tell us the status of the message, if it's been sent successfully or if it's been a failure. Right now, we can see which option is selected because there's a blue circle inside next to "Sent success and failure". Right now, every time a message is sent successfully or fails, we receive an on-screen message. We can turn On or Off this option, or we can edit it. The first option, "Sent success only", will show a message on-screen when a message has been sent successfully.

    Press down on the "Sent success only" circle, and that will put a blue dot in it
    .
    It will also take us out of the option, so press down on "Display message on screen" again to see that the dot has moved to the top.

  10. 10
    To prevent messages from appearing at all, press down on "None"
    .
    It won't display any messages on-screen regarding the success or failure of a message being sent. We're going to choose the original option, "Sent success and failure", because we like to see an on-screen message telling us the status of our messages.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    Press down on the circle, and it's going to take us out of that option and back into our "Settings" menu
    .
