Maximum Message Length

SMS messages are simple text messages up to 160 characters in length or 70 characters long if there are unicode characters in the message (for Greek and Arabic text messages for example). The default settings will not allow any messages longer than these limits but you can change the message count setting to send longer messages up to four times the length of a standard text or unicode message. You will pay a multiple of the message price to send these longer concatenated messages.


The reply number defaults to your handset mabile number (although we may ask you to complete a registration process by text before this works properly). You can change the setting to an 11 character alphanumeric string (for example part of your company name) to send out text messages that do not allow a reply.
