Can I send long messages internationally?


Jessica Murray


You may send messages over 160 characters to international phone numbers (for GSM-7 encoding), or 70 characters (for UCS-2 encoding).

 Bandwidth will always segment and send as a concatenated message. In many cases, destination operators support this feature.  However, long messages may appear as multiple messages on the destination handset, if the receiving carrier does not support concatenated SMS.
