Multipart Messages

Author: Anagha Ravi

A Multipart Message refers to a single SMS message (longer than 160 characters) being broken into as many multiple 160-character SMS messages as needed to facilitate the sending of longer messages.

How Bandwidth is involved with multipart messages

Since SMS messages are usually sent as 160-characters per message, Bandwidth offers multipart messages to allow longer messages that surpass the range of 160-characters to be sent. The recipient will still get a single message (subject to underlying carrier’s capabilities) and the multiple parts are arranged in the right order.

There are times when 160 characters just aren’t enough. This is where Bandwidth steps in to make sure the message still gets across.
