Unique Clicks (SMS)
The Unique Clicks (SMS) metric is the sum of all the unique clicks recorded for an SMS message. A unique click is recorded the first time a contact clicks any link contained in an SMS you send them. If a contact clicks a link 9 times, 1 unique click will be recorded. If 2 contacts each click a link 10 times, then 2 clicks will be recorded. If a single contact clicks 5 different links, than 1 unique click is recorded.
Note: The Unique Clicks (SMS) metric if not the same as the Total Clicks (SMS) metric. For more information on the Total Clicks (SMS) metric and how it is calculated, see SMS Total Clicks Metric.

The Unique Clicks (SMS) metric is the sum of all the unique clicks recorded for an SMS message.

Multi-Part Messages (SMS)
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.

SMS Total Sent minus SMS Single Recipients = SMS Multi-Part Messages

Incoming (SMS)
The Incoming (SMS) metric represents the total number of times contacts replied to an SMS message you sent them.
Note: Once an initial SMS is received, the person begins an SMS session which lasts for 1 hour. During the life of the session, any additional SMS messages received from that person are considered SMS replies.

The Incoming (SMS) metric is a total of the number of times contacts replied to an SMS message you sent them.
