“I Sent SMS but Some Numbers Did Not Get It"- See the Recipient’s Fault

  15 July 2016

Partial delivery of bulk SMS is said to happen when you send bulk messages and some recipients get it while others do not. All parties involved from the point of sending to delivery of bulk SMS has a role to play in partial delivery. We’ve already seen the role of network operators. See here.

 

Here, we look at the role of the recipient in partial delivery of bulk SMS.

 

RECIPIENT’S ROLE IN PARTIAL DELIVERY OF BULK SMS

Partial delivery of bulk SMS sometimes can be caused from the message supposed recipient’s end, although unintentionally.

 

One of the reasons why a message might not get delivered to a phone number is if the number is switched off or out of network coverage while the message validity period lasts. If the GSM operator tries to get the message delivered on that particular phone during this period and it proves abortive, the message will be expired and when the phone comes up, the supposed recipient won’t get it.

 

Another reason for partial delivery of bulk messages coming from the recipient angle is mobile number portability issues. It has been discovered that ported phone numbers do not receive application to mobile text messages, and as such others will get the message but such one(s) won’t.

 

In other cases, the recipient’s message inbox might be full and so the message doesn’t come in. In this situation, the delivery report may read delivered whereas it doesn’t come in on the phone.

 

On SmartSMSSolutions, you do not have to guess to know how many of your recipients got the message you forwarded to them. You can check the delivery report for your sent messages to know this. Additionally, we’ve put together a list of delivery status codes and what they mean so that you can tell where the partial delivery of your sent messages is coming from.

 

Partial delivery of bulk SMS though is not unsolvable. See here how to handle partial delivery of bulk SMS .
