The answer is No. Sent messages on your bulk SMS account cannot be deleted. It should also be noted that this decision or arrangement is not peculiar to SmartSMSSolutions only but applies to most if not all telecommunication companies.
“WHY CAN’T I DELETE MY SENT MESSAGES”?
The major reason you cannot delete sent messages on your bulk SMS account has to do with security concerns and future reference purposes. In short, it is a protection for everybody, both us and you.
HOW DOES THIS PROTECT YOU?
The non-provision of the delete sent messages option protects you in that someone cannot use your bulk SMS account without your consent and get away with it. If it had been possible to delete sent messages, intruders can use your bulk SMS units in sending their own messages and delete it, and thus you cannot trace how it happened. If that happens, nobody has an explanation for a sudden reduction in your bulk SMS account.
Additionally, someone might unwittingly delete some of your sent messages, and you might want to make reference to such messages in the future. Therefore, this arrangement ensures you can always get access to your sent messages at anytime you wish to.
HOW DOES THIS PROTECT US?
