Unicode Support

Esendex's programmable SMS API (SMS Notify!) supports Unicode for most destinations when using International Extended DIDs. Unicode text messages are 70 characters per transaction.

By default, Unicode is disabled. With Unicode disabled, SMS Notify! supports Latin-9 or ISO/IEC 8859-15 encoding, which are 160 characters per transaction.

To send Unicode messages set the IsUnicode parameter to True in the SendMessage method. SMS Notify! supports UTF-16.
