Hi Neeraj,

There isn't a complete list of error codes, because they are defined as being network and SMSC specific.

What you can generally count on is the "stat:DELIVRD" field telling you that it was successful.

Here are a few others "stat" values:

ENROUTE is an interim OK response (some SMSCs cannot give delivery receipts, and by returning this response it indicates that the message has been queued for delivery, but an actual delivery receipt may not be available)
REJECTD means failed or rejected
EXPIRED means expired without being delivered
DELETED means message was deleted without being delivered
ACCEPTD is similar to ENROUTE
UNKNOWN means an unknown type of failure

Keep in mind that there may be other network specific values as well. I usually recommend treating any other value as an UNKNOWN failure, but the first time you see a different value, you should probably investigate.

Also note that DELIVRD id sometimes not shorted and is spelled out in its entirety. If it start with "DELIV", treat it as DELIVRD.

This format is documented in an appendix of the SMPP 3.4 specification. There is a link to that specification in the following thread:
