If the number of characters in one SMS exceeds 160 ASCII characters or 70 UNICODE characters, the size and calculation of one SMS is 153 ASCII characters (Latin characters) and 67 UNICODE characters.

I sent 1 SMS, but more money was debited from my account than for 1 SMS. Why?

You can send long messages (up to 500 characters).

If you send a message that is longer than the standard length of one message, your account will be charged more than 1 SMS, according to the table below: 

Message length (number of characters)
The amount to be debited corresponds to the dispatch:
 ASCII Format
1 standard message
2 standard messages
3 standard messages
4 standard messages
5 standard messages
6 standard messages
7 standard messages
8 standard messages
