Needs review[edit]

Although I wrote this page, and have dumbed it down considerably from a truly technical article, I still feel it contains too much detail and may be confusing to a casual reader. Unfortunately, I feel I am too familiar with the subject to further simplify it, and so would appreciate someone else, with some knowledge but not a huge amount, coming along and simplifying it more.

  • No, I am sorry but this article is perfect! This is axactly what I needed to know. Anyway, look at the title of the page : it's written "technical realisation", not "how to send my first sms". —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:24, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Good article, I agree! --Mgarlop (talk) 10:47, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Yes, I've found it useful too, thanks. Should be ok for an Encyclopedia to have some involved technical info. eug (talk) 02:00, 10 September 2009 (UTC)
  • I do not see the need for any further simplification - In fact, I'd like to see the original "non dumbed down" version. 14 February 2010, 1626 EST
  • The article is definitely a good one. If you need simplicity, seek for a different one. If you need even more details, the original documentation can be downloaded (Technical realization of Short message service, 3GPP TS 23.040) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:05, 12 January 2011 (UTC)
I'd be interested to learn how SMS federation between several mobile networks works. How does one network know which network a particular number belongs to? Does it use the normal number portability databases which are used for voice? Or are there seperate databases for SMS? -- (talk) 20:08, 11 March 2012


  • Very useful! Maybe some sample needed

SMS failed delivery storage/deletion[edit]

When an SMS message cannot be delivered, due to the target mobile being turned off, where is the message stored? How long will the message be stored, before being deleted, typically? - (talk) 18:48, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
