Regular texts contain up to 160 characters (interesting fact: the € symbol takes up two characters!).
Message Hero – similar to most mobile phones – has the ability to send long or “multi-part” texts. When you send a multi-part text, each part contains a maximum of 153 characters, and each part costs the same as a regular text i.e. 3.3p. There is a maximum of 3 parts meaning you can send up to 459 (3 x 153) characters.
So, there is no problem for you to go over the 160 character limit but it will cost you more credit.
