The text within messages is not entirely made up of plain text. Hidden characters may be added to your message if special symbols and formatted material pasted from a word processing document contain hidden characters.

This can cause your message to exceed 160 characters, resulting in a single message being counted as twice costing you additional money. This expense might quickly build up when thousands of messages are sent. Also, when conveyed to your customers, these special characters can scramble parts of your message, causing your carefully planned message to become illegible.

Any concealed or odd characters will be detected and replaced using SMS.CX's character converter. Any concealed or special characters are transformed to normal characters once found, ensuring that your SMS contains the maximum number of characters possible. This not only prevents jumbled messages, but it also saves money.
