Citing from here (by the way search is your friend) https://crowdsupport.telstra.com.au/t5/Network-Roaming/Short-sms-reattempt-period/m-p/775120:
"To answer your question about re-delivery, the Network will hold an SMS for delivery for up to 7 days before the SMSC discards the message.
It should also be noted that messages are delivered sequentially, so if the message at the head of the queue is delayed all messages queued up behind this message will also be delayed."
Is this by any chance related to this thread https://crowdsupport.telstra.com.au/t5/Billing-Payments/Overseas-charges/td-p/778349 ? And this one https://crowdsupport.telstra.com.au/t5/Network-Roaming/Retrieving-SMS-messages/m-p/778548/highlight/... ? Repeating question and yelling will not give you much sympathy here...
