When you send an SMS message, your mobile phone usually displays ‘message sent’. This however does not mean that SMS has been successfully delivered to intended recipient. It only means that SMS message has been successfully delivered to SMS message centre.

When you send an SMS, it is first delivered to an SMS message centre. It is then delivered from message centre to intended recipient’s mobile phone if it can be located on network. If intended recipient’s handset is off or out of network coverage, the SMS message will be stored for a limited duration at the message centre or until recipient’s phone is located on network, whichever comes first.

If for any reason the limited duration allowed for SMS storage elapses before intended recipient comes into network coverage area the SMS will be deleted and hence will not be received by the intended recipient, although ‘message sent’ may have been displayed when SMS message was first sent.

This simply means that ‘message sent’ information is not enough to confirm that your text has been successfully delivered.

To get a more reliable confirmation report when an SMS is delivered or not delivered to intended recipient, you must activate SMS delivery report feature on your mobile phone.

SMS delivery report feature is a network-enabled feature that instructs the message centre to send back a report to sender’s mobile phone when SMS is successfully delivered to recipient’s handset. It will also send a report if SMS delivery fails. Once you receive a successful delivery report, you can be confident that your SMS has been delivered.
