Binary encoding

A Binary encoded message can have a length of max 140 characters/bytes. For the Text parameter please only use ASCII-Characters (8-bit). See Binary SMS for a vCard example.

Binary messages can also contain more than 140 characters/bytes and are then, similar toGSM7 and UCS2 messages, split up into multiple parts. Each part can then contain at max 134 characters/bytes.
