How much does it cost to send an SMS?

The price varies depending on the country you’re sending to, the type of Lime license you have and the length of the message. · Each SMS is a maximum of 160 characters. That’s just how SMS technology works.

  • A message containing more than 160 characters becomes several text messages, even if smartphones tie these messages together and show just one long text message.
  • Since it takes a few characters to connect one SMS to another, you can’t exactly count on 160 characters per SMS. Only the first SMS is guaranteed to give you 160 characters.
  • If you use merge data in an SMS message, it’s difficult to calculate the number of characters your message consists of in advance.
