Hi Antonis,

I think you will find the following post helpful in explaining all of the details:

http://blog.nowsms.com/2007/06/long-sms-text-messages-and-160.html

As long as you use only characters in the 7-bit GSM character set (see http://support.nowsms.com/discus/messages/1/1103.html), then the following limits would apply:

1 SMS = 160 chars
2 SMS = 306 chars (153 x 2)
3 SMS = 459 chars (153 x 3)
