Can any body help me out about 0x8 error code returned by the SMSC.
The Submit_Sm message sent to the SMSC by my application is quite OK, but the SMSC sometimes responds to it with 0x8.
This is a unusual response, and is not observed constantly, the SMSC usually don't respond in this way. rather a normal behavior is observed, but suddenly it starts bouncing with 0x8 (NACK).

Thank you in advance.

Hi Asteroid,

Unfortunately, I think you need to talk to your SMS provider.

Error code 8 is a generic "System Error" response.

It would be unusual for this to be returned if a message was malformed. I would interpret it as indicating a problem at the SMS service provider.

I would suggest asking the SMS service provider.

From your side, you may also want to look for common attributes of messages that are being rejected. Are certain recipient phone numbers always returning errors? Is it messages of a particular length?
