SMS - Need to increase the number of characters in SMS

Follow

Q: I want to increase the number of character(around 500) in the sms, when user send or receive.

Please suggest, is this possible ?


A: Sorry the per SMS character limit is set by the carriers, max 160 characters.

 

At the moment when someone sends a message in you reply to it with one 160 character message. You can purchase additional messages that you can use to send to the users.

e.g. at the moment in Nigeria which is MO billed you do the following:

MO (billed)
MT 1 x 160 character (std rate)

change to:

MO (billed)
MT 1 x 160 characters (std rate)
MT 1 x 160 characters (std rate)
etc

Send more MTs to increase the amount of characters.
