My son in law sends me text. I send him a reply. When he reads and replies to me it says under my reply he read it at such n such a time.

Also, all my other text messages are in green and his is in blue? I couldn't find anything to control these things.
Blue is because you are both using iMessage. iMessage is used to send text messages when you are both on wifi, the texts don't count towards your message count, if one has limited texting it helps. Also if one sends videos or pics it doesn't count towards your data usage either.

It seems that the date stamp is different too. If it says Read he read the message, if he hasn't read it yet it will say Delivered.
