Twilio SMS Status
Every Twilio SMS or MMS message request has a status value which describes the current state of the message. Here are the most common message statuses, and their meanings.
Outbound Message Status Progression
When sending outbound messages with the REST API, this is a typical sequence of status values:
||Twilio has received your request to create the message. All new messages sent from a specific Twilio phone number are created with a status of queued.|
||Twilio has received your request to create the message from a Messaging Service. Twilio is determining the optimal ‘From’ number from your service.|
||Twilio is forwarding your message request to one of our Super Network partners.|
||Twilio has received a confirmation from our Super Network partner advising they have accepted the message.|
Twilio Opt-out Message
Recipients can reply with the word STOP to opt-out from Twilio messages. In this case the contact will be automatically tagged with “Twilio-Message-stop”.
Note: According to Twilio Policy, if you plan to use Twilio to send any text messages from 10DLC phone numbers, you’ll need to register your messaging use case (known as a Campaign) in Twilio Console or with Twilio APIs. Messages from unregistered numbers are subject to filtering and higher unregistered fees, and may ultimately be blocked by telecommunications carriers. For more details, please check this Twilio.
