How is a multipart SMS processed?

If your SMS message contains emoji, special or non-English symbols that count as extra characters, the message may be sent as multipart SMS (several messages). Majority of the users have modern devices and will receive them as one long SMS, depending on the handset they have.  Smartphones (iPhone & android) support incoming multipart (long) SMS and assemble them as 1 long message (SMS). Older feature phones may receive several separate messages.

A single SMS message consists of 160 characters.

When you schedule your single or group SMS campaigns, and go over the 160 character limit, a prompt will be displayed

special characters SMS
