We are developing a JAVA application that sends SMS using wireless message API 2.0. We know that sometimes the SMS is not sent even though the phone indicates the SMS has been sent that happens about 20% of the time. Phone i am using is Sony Ericsson K718 and K600.

Is there a reliable way to verifying that an SMS as been sent?

Suggestion appreciated!

Are your messages text only or is there any binary information?

Just for grins :) try adding 13 spaces at the end of your SMS.
No I'm not kidding, just try it and see if that doesn't help.

Also as Terrence mentioned verify if it is a particular Operator you
are having issues with, and check if it is a particular type of information.

While some providers have 160 char max limit other have 120, so verify
that it's not a size issue .... and they say size doesn't matter. ;)

Hi,

Since SMS are generally delivered as a 'best effort' I don't think there is a way to verify the delivery of an SMS. Have you verified the non-delivery of messages also occurs on a different operator network?
