Your message has been successfully delivered to the recipient's handset.
A pending message is one that we have received no confirmation from the carrier delivered or undelivered. These confirmations are known as delivery receipts.
If a message still has a pending status after an hour, the most common reason for pending messages are:
- Phone out of credit and cannot receive SMS.
- Phone number active but phone switched off or out of range.
- Active pre-paid account but SIM not in the phone.
- Network problems.
When a message is in pending status, several carrier dependent retry strategies come into operation.
If there is no response by the end of the retry period the message will become expired and will be marked as soft bounced.
Indicates the mobile handset has not received the messages.
The most common reasons are:
- SIM card is not in the phone
- Out of network range for more than 72 hours
- Have not paid phone bill
- Travelling overseas (connected to another network)
Indicates the number is invalid or disconnected. You can safely delete the number from your list.
