What is the character limitation per SMS?

Each SMS is equal to 160 characters but if it’s a Unicode SMS, it is limited to 70 characters per SMS

For example, if the message contains emojis, or if it is in another foreign language such as Japanese, then the character limit is 70

In the ShoutOUT SMS creator, you can compose messages up to 3 SMSs (459 characters for normal SMS & 201 characters for Unicode SMS). Those messages will be sent as an individual message but will be charged upon the number of SMSs

For Normal SMS

If the message contains 140 characters will be charged for 1 SMS, if the SMS with 185 characters will be charged for 2 SMSes and if the SMS with 345 characters will be charged for 3 SMSs.

For Unicode SMS

If the message contains 65 characters will be charged for 1 SMS, if the SMS with 130 characters will be charged for 2 SMSs and if the SMS with 190 characters will be charged for 3 SMSs
