Any size limit for sms text size?

I wish to know while using sms api of rc do we restrict our text messages to a certain character limit?

Didn't find anything like that. What is the size it restricts?

"RingCentral's service sends individual messages up to 160 characters and can concatenate longer messages up to 1000 characters. "

As per the link here: https://ringcentral-faq.readthedocs.io/en/latest/sms/

1000 characters in both inbound and outbound SMS

Hi Dilip,

Text of a message. Max length is 1000 symbols (2-byte UTF-16 encoded). If a character is encoded in 4 bytes in UTF-16 it is treated as 2 characters, thus restricting the maximum message length to 500 symbols. Yes u can send special characters as well!
