All SMS notifications sent through your account are recorded in the SMS log data. The possible statuses include Delivered, Sent, Rejected and Failed.
- Delivered: The SMS was sent and arrival was confirmed via delivery receipt.
- Sent: SMS was sent but a delivery receipt has not been received yet.
- Rejected: The phone number was found to be invalid prior to sending.
- Failed: The SMS failed to be delivered.
Note about the "Sent" statusIt is common for an SMS to show as “Sent” when it is in the process of being delivered. Once the SMS is delivered and a delivery receipt is received, the status will change to “Delivered."
