What is a concatenated message?
Concatenated messages, also known as multi-part messages, are text messages that have been split into multiple smaller segments, and then sent as a single message.
These types of messages are used when a message exceeds the maximum character limit for a single text message.
What is an example of a concatenated message?
Here’s an example, let’s say you want to send a message to a friend that’s 2000 characters long, but the maximum character limit for a single text message is only 160 characters. In this case, you’ll need to use a concatenated message to send the entire message to your friend.
The message will be split into multiple segments, and then sent as a single message. The receiving device will then reassemble the original message for the recipient to read.
Why do people use concatenated messages?
Well, when you have a message that’s longer than the maximum character limit for a single text message, you’ll need to use a concatenated message to send it.
How many segments can a concatenated message have?
It depends on the network and device you’re using, but it’s usually between 2 to 10 segments.
When I receive a concatenated message, will it come as multiple messages?
No, it’ll come as a single message. Your device will automatically reassemble the original message for you.
How will I know if a message is a concatenated message?
Normally, you’ll receive it as a single message, but your device may display a message indicator, like a counter, to show that it’s a concatenated message.
Can concatenated messages be sent to any mobile number?
Yeah, but the device on the receiving end needs to support the concatenated message format.
Are concatenated messages charged differently than regular text messages?
It depends on your carrier or service provider, but usually, it’s charged the same way as a regular text message.
Can concatenated messages contain multimedia content?
It depends on the network and the device, but usually, it can only contain text.
Can I send a concatenated message to a group of people?
Yes, you can send a concatenated message as a group message.
Are there any limitations to sending concatenated messages?
It depends on the network and device, but generally, the maximum number of segments and characters that can be sent in a single concatenated message are limited.
