With our system, you have the capability of sending a message of up to 918 characters. For this reason, our charging model has to be based as a credit based system, as this is how we are charged by the mobile network operators.
Each credit represents 1 x standard length text message of up to 160 characters.
Long messages of up to 918 characters are charged as follows:
Up to 160 characters = 1 credit
Up to 306 characters = 2 credits
Up to 459 characters = 3 credits
Up to 612 characters = 4 credits
Up to 765 characters = 5 credits
Up to 918 characters = 6 credits
In addition to long messaging, our system also allows messages to contain unicode characters (special symbols, like the euro sign), however these are charged a little differently, so please be careful, if unicode characters are not required, please ensure you use standard characters wherever possible.
0-70 characters = 1 credit
71-134 characters = 2 credits
135-201 characters = 3 credits
202-268 characters = 4 credits
