Well, I’ve been there.
I know how frustrating it can get when you try sending an SMS and you keep getting that annoying “Delivery Failure” notification. 🙁
There are definitely a couple of factors that usually result to this of which a wrong Message Center number is a major culprit. Most times your messages do not get delivered, it’s as a result of your message center number been tampered with (i.e replaced with a wrong one).
