An SMS will be billed as follows:
0 – 160 characters = 1 SMS (1 credit)
161 – 306 characters = 2 SMSs (2 credits)
307 - 459 characters = 3 SMSs (3 credits)
To determine the length of the SMS and how many SMSes will be billed, the following calculation applies:
x = Number of characters (taking into account 7-bit and 14-bit)
Total length of characters is 340.
- The above calculation only applies if the SMS is greater than 160 characters in length.
- Maximum SMS length is 459 characters.
- SMSes longer than one SMS, i.e. 160 characters, in length are concatenated and display on the phone as one SMS.
- Anything longer than 459 characters will be truncated and billed as 3 SMSes.
