Hi,

Was just wondering what is an acceptable frequency of polling the web service for new SMS messages?

Thanks,

Hi Bilal,

Hope you are referring to the delay in delivery to create a polling interval on your system.
With the Web SMS we cannot really guarantee the time it takes to deliver a message. Hence we cannot recommend you a time frame. :(

Drop an email to residentialsupport@exetel.com.au with your service details and your expectation so that we can check and advise. :)

Hi,

Sorry, I'm referring to the MVN inbox.

Haven't gotten to the send status just yet!

Thanks,
