Step 2 - The message is waiting to be uploaded to the SMS gateway from the client

The message enters a queue after being sent using the Ozeki SMS Client and waits to be uploaded to the SMS gateway. Outgoing messages are temporarily held in this queue before being sent to the SMS gateway for further processing before being transmitted to the recipient's mobile network. By opening the "Outbox" folder, a plain envelope indicates that the message is waiting to be uploaded to the SMS Gateway.

Step 3 - The message is in the SMS gateway waiting for transmission

Once the message has been successfully uploaded to the SMS gateway, it enters a temporary storage area, in the "Sent items" in the gateway while it awaits transmission to the recipient's mobile network. To make sure the message is successfully sent to the recipient's mobile network, the SMS gateway regularly checks the message's status and, if necessary, employs retry mechanisms.

Step 4 - The message is transmitted

During the transmission process, the message is delivered from the SMS gateway to the recipient's mobile network. An envelope in the "Sent items" folder means that the message was delivered to the recipient's network. Successful transmission depends on the recipient's phone's availability and the reliability of the recipient's mobile network.

Once the message has been transmitted and successfully delivered by the recipient's mobile network, it is received on the destination phone as an incoming SMS notification.

A green arrow on an envelope within the "Sent items" folder signifies that the message has been successfully delivered to the network.
