Do I need a mobile phone ?
You do not need a mobile phone to use messenger; messages are sent and received from Messenger. It is all web based so you do not need to download anything. All you need is an internet enabled PC, Mac or Tablet.
How can I send and receive SMS messages online ?
It’s essentially the same process that you would go through when sending a standard SMS message on your phone, only on your computer. With a Textlocal Messenger account for you or your business, it’s as simple as typing in your message, selecting the number you wish to send to, and pressing send. Job done.
How much does it cost to send a message ?
The cost depends on how many credits you want to buy; one credit equals one text message and the credits last indefinitely. The cost of our credit bundles can be found on our prices page.
Will my credits expire ?
Your credits will never expire.
How many characters can I send in a message?
You can send up to 765 characters in a message. Here, we refer to standard Latin symbols (ASCII) and not special or Unicode characters. Messenger displays clearly when composing your message as to how many characters you have used and how many credits your text will use up so you can edit the message accordingly.
What is length of an SMS and what is the relation between message length and credits ?
The standard length of SMS is 160 characters in Latin symbols (ASCII). It also varies depending on the message type, especially if it is a Unicode message or if the message uses any special characters (refer to the question below).
A message with up to 160 characters uses up one SMS credit. If the message is more than 160 characters, one credit is used up for 153 characters as the remaining 7 characters are used to concatenate the message when it is delivered to the handset. So, one SMS credit is used up for a maximum of 160 characters, 2 credits are used up for 161-306 characters (=153*2) and so on. You can send messages up to 765 characters and this long message will use up five SMS credits (765 = 153*5).
