Explanation/resolution

Error message:
SMS is too Long. Only part of the message was sent.

SMS messages have a limit on the number of characters that can be sent.

Follow these steps to resolve this issue:

  1. When sending an SMS, check if the message includes non-Latin or Unicode text.
    This can reduce the number of available characters.
  2. When copying and pasting text from another source, Unicode characters can be hidden within the text.
    Try typing the text from scratch, rather than copying and pasting.
