How many characters per SMS?
If you are sending an sms within the standard GSM 0338 character set, it will be 160 characters per sms, however if you include characters outside of this character set, the sms size will be reduced to 70 characters.
Blast SMS does allow you to send more than a single sms, this is called concatination and will require several sms characters in order to "join" the whole sms.
SMS Character Table:
|English + Symbols||Non-English|
|1 SMS||160 Characters||70 Characters|
|2 SMS||306 Characters||134 Characters|
|3 SMS||459 Characters||201 Characters|
|4 SMS||612 Characters||268 Characters|
|5 SMS||765 Characters||335 Characters|
|6 SMS||918 Characters||402 Characters|
Due to handset limitations, we do limit the character amount to 6 sms's in total.
