    Hi chaoraksa,
    Segmentation and Reassembly of the SMS will taken care by your phone it self . if you are sending the data more that the phone limit the phone will add the concatenated header to the message in the header , at the other end it will see like is it having the concatenation header in the the message header if it is there it will wait for the all the message to come , after receiving the all the message it will show the message . this behavior is different in different mobiles in some mobile it will show the the first part of the message and update when you are reading.

    The concatenated header contains following details like length of the header , unique identifier , number of parts , which part and so and so
    If you want more information about this go through the below links
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Concatenated_SMS

    Hope this will helps you

    Hi chaoraksa,

    If you are sending the English message for single message you can send (140 - 8(Header) ) = 132 characters you can send in single message

    If you want to send more than 132 characters then one message limit will be (140 - 12(Concatenated Header length)) = 128 characters

    Up to (128 x 3) = 384 phone will taken care of doing segmentation by it self . In some phone's if you are sending message more that 384 character phone atometically do the segmentation by it self . but it is better to put the 384 character's limit .
