This guide is intended to help you troubleshoot delivery errors on SMS channels. There are a few possible causes depending on the channel you're using:
An Android channel will experience sending issues if:
- the phone doesn't have a steady internet connection
- the phone doesn't have a strong cellular connection
- the Nyaruka Android app is toggled to "paused".

Please include a link to the error or contact profile in your support request.
If you suspect a workflow isn't behaving as expected, select "Results" from the ☰ menu icon located in the flow editor to bring up the most recent runs your contacts have made:
