A standard SMS with a maximum of 160 characters in ASCII or Latin symbols uses one SMS credit. If the message is more than 160 characters, one credit will reduce to 153 characters for concatenating the message during delivery by utilizing these seven characters. You can send a maximum of 918 characters, which will take up six SMS credits with a simple calculation of 153 x 6 = 918.
Why is my message even with less than 160 characters using two credits?
