 Reason 1 for Bulk SMS Delivery Failure- Use of Scam Related Words in Sender ID and Message Content

This is one of the major causes of bulk SMS delivery failure. GSM operators who are responsible for delivering messages might stop a message from getting delivered if it is screened and found to contain unsolicited content (spam) or words that are used by fraudsters (scam). It is good therefore to avoid the use of these words in our sent messages to avoid delivery problem arising from this..


Interestingly also, SmartSMSSolutions have put up a filtering system that contains some of the rejected words, so the system can alert you if your message contains them. This is updated regularly as more words are discovered. Learn more about words and word combinations not allowed as sender IDs and in the content of a message .

Also, we’ve put together the different delivery status codes and what they stand for .
