Before you spend too much time on this, try sending an EMS message with text formatting from the NowSMS interface.

My experience is that neither Android nor iPhone support EMS and the text is shown without formatting. So the audience that can actually see the EMS formatting is rather limited.

It's a shame, as EMS was a cool enhancement to SMS, and was added to the core SMS specifications by ETSI/3GPP ... but supporting it is optional.

Programatically, to send with EMS formatting, use &EMSText= instead of &Text= ... depending on libraries that you use for HTTP, you may need to URL escape "<" and ">". Examples are given here:
