Character Limit for Text Messaging

When sending out text messages, there is no longer a 160 character limit. If your message exceeds 160 characters, the system will automatically break up the message into multiple text messages:

Send Text Messages exceeding 160 characters

Please note, that you will be billed according to the number of messages sent per recipient. For example, if your message contains 200 characters, which requires 2 text messages, you will be billed for 2 text messages per recipient.
