Hello,
Is there anyway we know when now sms error sending SMS and return the CMS error code when sending through http ? Maybe we can query the status with some parameter?

Thank you :-)

Hi Rudy,

We do not currently track delivery statuses. (Other than recording information in the log files.) So it is not possible to query this status.

It is, however, possible to request delivery reports (also called delivery receipts). Not all modems and providers support delivery reports, however, if you are concerned about delivery reports from CMS Error Codes, NowSMS will generate a non-delivery report when a message fails, even if the provider does not support delivery reports.

These delivery reports get forwarded to the 2-way command processor, which is how they are forwarded back to you.

For more information, see the following thread which discusses this in considerable detail: http://support.nowsms.com/discus/messages/1/24078.html

An alternative approach is monitoring the NowSMS accounting callbacks.

They are described here: http://www.nowsms.com/doc/advanced-configuration-settings/sms-accounting-callbac ks

The Type=SMSOut call back is triggered after every send attempt. So if you are mostly interested in monitoring modem errors, this would be the best way to find out.
