A single SMS is 160 characters (stored in 140 bytes/octets), but if you use characters not in the default SMS alphabet (e.g., certain accented characters not in the default alphabet, or characters in languages like Greek, etc.), then the encoding automatically is switched to Unicode and two-bytes per character which gives you 70 characters for a single message.

However, phones like the 3230 automatically sends longer messages in multiple parts (as many as are needed), and most phones made within the last few years know how to reassemble the messages and show them as one.
