I suspect it may happen because our SMS provider blocks SMS messages which contain words like "verification code". I have seen this before. Please try to change subject.

Thanks for answering this Anton, do we have that list of blocked verbiage published on our site anywhere?

No we don't. Need to communicate to our SMS provider to further clarify this point.

We still need a blockage list documented somewhere so that we can verify if these type of situation comes where there is no clear picture why the SMS was not received inspite of have a successful delivery.

Apart from communicating the SMS provider, Rc should also document the list of content words do that this can be avoided
