You might be hearing message centre number but you don't know what is actually mean or you don't know how you can access it or otherwise you don't even how it functions. This article will explain it to you what is message centre is number and how it works. it is imperative for you to know that any kind of device that sends or receive message has something called Short Message Service Centre (SMSC) Number that regulates SMS service operation on your phone.

The Short Message Service Centre (SMSC) Number needs to be set correctly in your phone so it can send text messages. If you accidently change or delete it on your mobile phone, you’ll no longer be able to send sms. You will likely be getting “message sending” failed error whenever you try to send text messages on the phone.

What is Message Centre Number?

Short Message Service Centre (SMSC) Number is responsible for delivering the SMS text messages of a mobile network through your mobile phone. Typically an SMSC address is an ordinary mobile phone number in the international format.

When an SMS message is sent from a mobile phone, it will reach an SMS Service Centre first. The SMS centre then forwards the SMS message towards the destination mobile network. An SMS message may need to pass through more than one network entity (e.g. SMSC and SMS gateway) before reaching the mobile phone.

The main duty of an SMSC is to route SMS messages and regulate the process. If the recipient is unavailable (for example, when the mobile phone is switched off), the SMSC will store the SMS message. It will forward the SMS message when the recipient is available.

To be able to send SMS from your Mobile (Cell) phone you must first know the address of the mobile network operator’s SMSC. Normally, the SMSC address is pre-set in the SIM card by the mobile network operator, which means you do not need to make any changes to it, unless you want to use FREE SMSC’s.
