SMS Text Length
160 characters in the U.S. and Canada is the industry-standard maximum for SMS messages across all carriers and phones.
Do not make the text message data too long. It will trigger multiple text messages to arrive to a patient or practitioner and is not user friendly and does not create a smooth experience. Text message content is restricted to a maximum of 160 characters so recipient only receives 1 text message. Please remember that data is being merged from the database, such as a payment link URL, this counts towards the 160 characters.
You can define an SMS signature and it will be put into every text message at the bottom. Again, do not make this very long as it counts towards your 160 character limit.
