I have seen the settings where the sms delivery confirmation can be turned off, but what I need to do is to disable the notification that comes on top.

Any way to get this done on Windows Phone 8, I have a Nokia Lumia 720

for this go to -->notification center then --> messaging and --> remove the tick from show banner alerts


When you enable delivery confirmation for SMS, the confirmation comes in as a text itself. Because this comes in as a text message, you cannot control when the toasts appear or disable them (just like for regular text messages).

There are several users who have been requesting such a feature as you can see here.

There is also rumored to be an update to Windows Phone 8 coming soon- Windows Phone 8.1. There is potential that this may be addressed in one of the future versions.
