It attempts to send messages to their recipients. Message delivery is best effort. in which case each message will start with a user data header (UDH) containing segmentation information. which can provide confirmation that the message has reached the intended recipient. the SMSC queues the message for later retry. so there are no guarantees that a message will actually be delivered to its recipient. or 70 16-bit characters. Users may choose to request delivery reports.g. 140 8-bit characters. Some SMSCs also provide a "forward and forget" option where message delivery is tried only once.
