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.
