What does DLR mean?

DLR is short for Delivery Report. This is the receipt you get for each SMS sent. It will contain a status (e.g. DELIVRD, UNDELIV, EXPIRED etc.) and an error code. If the message was not delivered the error code will be a clue as to why. For example, the error code can be “Absent Subscriber” which means that the subscriber/handset is not connected to the operator network and therefore not reachable right now. This is a very common error and usually means that the handset is turned off but could also mean that the signal strength is very low.
