You can send text messages that are longer than the character limit for a single message.
Longer messages are sent as two or more messages. Your service provider may charge
accordingly. Characters with accents, other marks, or some language options, take more space,
and limit the number of characters that can be sent in a single message.
Using services or downloading content, including free items, may cause the transfer of large
amounts of data, which may result in data costs.
