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.
