Therefore, your message has to show at least one check mark in order to be sent. Everything else is out of your hands and depends on the internet connection of the receiver or when the person reads your message. Don’t forget, that you may not see the blue check marks, because you have deactivated the read receipts or the receiver has turned them off on his/her iPhone.
