You must not use this website or any part of it to transmit or send unsolicited commercial communications, without the prior consent of the recipient of such communication.
You must not use this website for any purposes related to marketing without the express written consent of the recipient of such marketing material.
You must have the consent of all recipients of SMS messaging before sending such correspondence. It is solely up to you, to send SMS messages at a reasonable hour for the recipient of any and all messages. WedTexts.com will be held harmless if you send such communications without prior consent and/or communication that is found to be bothersome by any recipient. STANDARD TEXT MESSAGE RATES MAY APPLY for recipients of SMS messages.
During this process it is impossible for ANY messaging company to guarantee delivery of the SMS to each phone number due to many possible circumstances on the carrier and the individual phone devices. As provided by Nexmo in their knowledge base, here are a few reasons a message sent from WedTexts might not reach its intended target properly.
Carrier Spam Filters
Most carriers in developed markets prefer to use regulations to control the flow of spam. In developing markets, however, technology is used to filter out unwanted texts. These filters, however, are not perfect and can lead to filtering legitimate SMS traffic, as well. Some filters even send back a fake handset delivery confirmation. You think your message is delivered, but it is not. Furthermore, filter technology is in constant evolution, and associated algorithms change constantly. Keeping track of which carriers filter and how is a complex task.
Unfortunately we cannot ensure delivery to roaming numbers due to the complexity and lack of reliability of Carrier Interconnection Agreements. Basically, this is related to the routing carrier not having Interconnection Agreements with the roaming operator.
Sending the Wrong Content
Not all phones support all languages. For instance, sending a Chinese message to a French phone will get to the handset but will not display to the user. Sending binary messages to an iPhone won’t work, either. Certain carriers also filter some keywords (such as the carrier’s own name) to prevent brand theft and scams.
Handset Cannot Receive SMS
There are any number of reasons that can prevent a phone from receiving an SMS that it would be able to receive under normal conditions, including the phone being out of reach, a full memory, roaming, temporary disconnection, the number not existing anymore, and so on.
A lot of phones get ported everyday from one network to another. The number will still look like the original network but the real network has changed. To address this, carriers have introduced network look-ups that provide them with the real network before sending the message. This guarantees that the SMS is routed correctly. The process, however, is not perfect. Network look-ups are expensive, and many providers don’t do them everywhere. Some carriers, in fact, still don’t even support these looks-ups at all. Additionally, some portability databases only get updated every 24 hours.
