Important Points about Delivery Reports
Message States 1 and 2 i.e. “Message in Queue” and “Submitted to Carrier” are only temporary states. They eventually would move to States 3, 4, 5 or 6 i.e. “Delivered” or “Expired” or “Undelivered” or “Rejected”.We are charged for all message states returned by the Carrier except for “Rejected State”; the reason being that the
Operator’s GSM network and infrastructure is taken up for trying to deliver your SMS Text messages. We follow the same principle to bill our Users. All GSM networks support delivery receipts while CDMA technology does not support this. They return a delivery receipt as and when they accept it at their SMSC but the final delivery to the actual recipient is their sole discretion. The actual delivery is consistent with our expectations most of the times (around 99.95%).
