Typically, SMS messages have a limit of 160 characters, which in some cases just isn’t enough. Let’s say you’d like to send a very important business SMS without having to shorten words or use text talk. This is where concatenation or long SMS messages come in.
Concatenation happens automatically when using the BulkSMS products, and lets you send a single SMS message that consists of up to 6 SMS parts in one send. In other words, you’ve got up to 918 characters to work with and not only 160.
So instead of trying your best to compress that very important notification into a bite-sized SMS, you can send long SMS messages filled with all the important details and the right spelling. And better yet, the SMS, whether its one SMS part or three SMS parts, will be delivered to the recipient as a single message. You won’t have to worry about your customers needing to decipher your SMS messages if they get delivered in the wrong order.
Concatenated SMS messages ensure you get your whole message across, the first time.
