The value of num_segments is always "1" (not accurate).

If num_media is more than 1 (maximum 10), subresource_uris would contain fields media0, media1, … up to media9.

For example:

“subresource_uris”: {“media0”: “media_url0”, “media1”:”media_url1”, … “media9”:”media_url9”}

Outbound Message Statuses

For outbound messages, possible values of “status” are the following:

  • queued - Message scheduled to be sent
  • sent - Message sent to SMS/MMS service provider, but not confirmed to be delivered
  • delivered - Message confirmed by SMS service provider to be delivered (currently not available for MMS)
  • failed - Failed to send the message (error_message would be present to provide more details)

Inbound Message Status

For inbound messages, status is received.
