What Does The Multi-Part Messages (SMS) Metric Represent?

The Multi-Part Messages (SMS) metric displays the number of SMS messages that exceeded the 160 character limit and were split in to multiple parts. Each part the message is split in to will count against your allocation. This is important to know for allocation reasons, and for examining the content of your SMS messages.
Note: SMS messages are limited to 160 characters. If the content of the message exceeds the 160 character limit, the message will be split and sent as multiple messages. SMS messages containing one or more non-GSM characters are limited to 70 characters. If the message contains non-GSM characters, the character limit will change from 160 to 70. If the content of the message exceeds the character limit, the message will be split and sent as multiple messages. Each message will count against your SMS allocation. A bounced SMS message does not count against your SMS allocation.
