I want to INSERT a log in a Log table when a sms is sent successfully.

string uid = "xxxx";
string password = "xxxx";
string SenderId = "xxxx";
string message = "Confirm Order No " + OrderNo + ". This Order Confirmation has been sent to you for your Ref. Order No: " + PoRefNo + ".";
string phoneNos = CustomerContact;
HttpWebRequest myReq = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("" + uid + "&password=" + password + "&msisdn=" + phoneNos + "&sid=" + SenderId + "&msg=" + message + "&fl=0&gwid=2");
HttpWebResponse myResp = (HttpWebResponse)myReq.GetResponse();
               System.IO.StreamReader respStreamReader = new System.IO.StreamReader(myResp.GetResponseStream());
string responseString = respStreamReader.ReadToEnd();            

               if (responseString != "Failed#Invalid Mobile Numbers")
                   B2B_Order_Master_SAP_BAL objOrderBAL = new B2B_Order_Master_SAP_BAL();
                   DataSet dsMessage = objOrderBAL.uspB2BCustomerPortal_InsertOrderSMSLog(hfCustomerId.Value.ToString(), CustomerContact, OrderNo, message, "Customer Care", "UploadOrder_CustCare");

What I have tried:

I am checking the value in "string responseString = respStreamReader.ReadToEnd(); "

if (responseString != "Failed#Invalid Mobile Numbers")
//Insert Log

Now the problem is i only know this one output:"Failed#Invalid Mobile Numbers" which is generated when invalid number is sent to api.

I want to know what other responses will be given by the api in terms of sms failure.

First thing: Didn't their API share those strings? Their API must enlist the values of the errors that come from servers.

Secondly, I would write it a bit differently, like this,
if (!responseString.Contains("Failed")) {
   // Success
} else {
   // Error handling
   var errorMessage = responseString.Split('#')[1]; 
   // Get the Invalid Mobile Number part

   // Save it to the database, show it to the user or whatever. 

I would still recommend reading their API guides and documentation to learn more errors and how they are returned.

Just my own opinion, I believe using error codes is a better way to guide the clients about the errors instead of sending the strings.
