When I just submit a SMS using the PHP API I got a reply as
MessageID=542E7A07, Recipient=1111111111

Now how can I check the status of this MessageID=542E7A07
whether it is in outbound SMS Queue or it is sent successfully.

When I check the xml status from
I can find the total no.s of SMS in outbound SMS Queue
but how can I find the status of a particular msg ID.

NowSMS does not track the status. So, there is no way to query status of a particular message.

However, you can request delivery reports, which are pushed to you to report delivery status (if supported by your SMSC connection).

It's a little complicated, but the basic idea is to request a delivery report when submitting a message (via HTTP include &ReceiptRequested=Yes). Delivery reports will arrive as inbound SMS starting with the text id: followed by the message ID.
