In GSM service the max char per SMS is 160 and in CDMA it is 130, however
there are phones that can show longer messages and has the ability to
identify multiple parts of a single message.
In advance phones, you can send messages of more than 160 character but you
will be charged for multiple SMS

Hi Yogesh,


I too believed that the message size in characters is same across handsets
and networks. I changed my belief after seeing lengthy messages going as a
single message from my phone (N79/Vodafone) to others but the same message
being broken into parts when sent from the latter (Spice/Tata, N72/Vodafone,

Dear Suneel and Zujar, Thank you very much for your replies. Suneel, you are
absolutely right as far as Nokia 3230 is concerned, because, in that set as
we click on the "send" link and the message happens to be longer than the
prescribed limit, the mobile always announces the length of the message and
asks whether we still want to send it? but in case of N 79, as we click on
the "send" option, the mobile sends the message straight away without asking
anything. By the way, could you please suggest me some link from where I can
download the manual for Talks 4.11?

 And dear Zujar, to the best of my knowledge, the length of the message is
universal with regard to all mobile handsets. That is why they generally
provide a feature in the mobile software itself for announcing as in to how
many parts the message would be divided while sending, and the sender is
charged equally for each part.
