SMS become shorter when not in English!
« on: April 13, 2015, 06:24:31 PM »
Did you know that sms becomes shorter when the text is not in English?????

These days I realized that when I am writing in Greek, the characters of one sms is limited to 70, but when I am writing in English, one sms is 160 characters! I asked many friends to try this, and we found out that some telephones have this problem and some have not, even if the telephones's brand is the same! I made a little search, and yes, this problem really exists with every language except English (e.g. Chinese, German and French special characters etc.). It's not fair!!!!!   :Win73:
