"Samsung has patented a method to allow users the recall an SMS message. The approach offers an opportunity to delete embarrassing texts providing recipients haven't already read a message, so chastened texters would need to act quickly.

The technology involves development of a phone that can send a "delete request" message to the receiver's mobile phone, requesting deletion of a potentially embarrassing SMS.

Hopefully this will work better than email message recall which often only serves to highlight that someone regrets sending a message."

I wonder what kind of royalties they'll be charging the telcos for use of it.

Should be worth a decent chunk of change.
