State information in the Ozeki SMS Client
Monitoring message states enables quick responses to address any possible difficulties, ensuring successful communication. This guide gives information about how you can track a message's state in the Ozeki SMS Client. The guide is accompanied by a series of screenshots that provide a detailed explanation.
Step 1 - Compose the message
For the first essential step in tracking a message state is to compose the message in the Ozeki SMS Client. Find the "Create SMS" icon at the interface, then enter the essential details into the Message Composer. Type the recipient's mobile phone number into the "To" box, then add your text message into a certain field. After that, click on the "Send" button at the upper left corner of the page.
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.
Step 5 - The message is received on the destination phone
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. The recipient can read the message in their inbox and take appropriate actions based on its content, completing the SMS delivery process. A green arrow on an envelope within the "Sent items" folder signifies that the message has been successfully delivered to the network.
On delivery error you get a different indication
On delivery error, you will receive a different indication in the "Sent items" folder. Instead of a green arrow, there will be a red x indicating the delivery failure or reason for the unsuccessful transmission. The error message will be visible in the message text, providing details about the issue.
