    Nokia 2 byte sms bug

    Hi all,
    Problem is that if I write message using my regional chars such as 'ĄČČĘĖĮŠŲ' and so on using PC suite, then it shows only 70 chars per message. Iif i write for example 100 chars, it shows 2 messages. Then i send this, and it goes to send messages folder. If i try to edit it using phone, I see 100/1. So mobile phone shows that it is only one message. Why? Isn't it a bug?
    Also, it i write msg on phone and use theese characters, phone shows that message will hold 160 chars. So who is right? My phone is 5140i.

    Re: Nokia 2 byte sms bug

    A single SMS can fit 140 bytes of text. The default SMS alphabet is a 7-bit alphablet, so a single SMS can hold 160 characters with it. If you use characters outside the default set, then the encoding is Unicode based, and each character takes two bytes, so you can fit 70 Unicode characters per SMS.

    The phone also support concatenated/long SMS messages, where a long message is shown as a single message, even if it gets sent (or is received) as multiple actual SMS messages.

    I had the same problem. But i resolved it. It´s as simple as it can be. In the message definition menu item lies your solution. Post if you have any doubts.
