We differentiate between a single message’s length and a single text message’s length. Depending on the alphabet used in your SMS, a standard SMS can contain up to 160 characters. But you can send a complete message using our platform that contains a total of 1377 characters, which will require 9 SMS posts.
For a concatenated SMS the costs of each additional SMS will be charged. The table below illustrates the amount of SMS needed to send a message that corresponds to each amount of characters.
|Number of SMS||Maximum GSM characters||Maximum Unicode characters|
Not all countries support concatenated SMS and might handle multi-part SMS in different ways. You can check if the country you want to send messages to does or doesn’t support concatenated SMS in our country info & restrictions.
