The final status in NTC is accepted.


When the SMS pushed is not delivered in any of the Telecom then it generates the status failed. It is because the receiver number might be “Out of network coverage” or “within weak network coverage” or “Switched off”. The credit consumed in failed status is not reverted, It is because the SMS pushed from the Client’s system is received at Sparrow’s server and further pushed to telecom’s server. In this process, the credit is consumed when the SMS is pushed from Sparrow’s server to telecom. So it is because credit consumed is not reverted.


When the SMS pushed from Client’s system is received at sparrow’s server but not pushed further to telecom’s server because of some technical error like shortcode/ server down, VPN restarted/off, error in Telecom’s network/server and huge data traffic. If the pushed SMS has been queued for more than an hour and is still not delivered/accepted/failed then the credits consumed will be reverted back to the clients.


When the SMS pushed is not delivered because of the error in “Identity” provided, then it generates status dispatched. It is because the identity is inactive or mistakenly entered.
