What is Unicode?

Unicode is the international encoding standard for scripts and characters of different languages, including Chinese, Japanese and Korean. Unlike ASCII, which uses 8 bits for characters and is capable of representing 256 unique characters, Unicode uses 16 bits to represent 65,536 unique characters.

What is Unicode Character Detection Tool?

Text messages are limited to 160 GMS characters. If your text contains any Unicode(Non-English, international characters) symbols , it needs to encoded as unicode which reduced the text character counts to 70 characters per text message instead of 160. This means that a 160-character SMS message will be split into three text messages if they have Unicode symbols. This is not a user friendly and can cost your three times to cost to send one text message. By using the Unicode character detection tool, you can identify and replace symbols that aren't part of the 7-bit GSM charset to avoid extra cost. We also provide a transliterate of the text message to GSM characters, which might not exactly same as your original text but will be new version, without any unicode or replacement characters from GSM character set.
