With the recent addition of UTF8 encoded characters to our Burst SMS platform to enable the sending of languages such as Chinese. There are also some picture symbols that can be sent using the web SMS service.
While the selection is currently small and does not extend to proper Emojis just yet, there are a few interesting characters you can use. You can cut and paste them directly from here into your message window t send them.
Please note that UTF8 characters limit SMS to 70 characters. So you pay for each 70 instead of each 160 as with standard text.
To add them to your text message simply cut and paste them from here into your message window.
This is a selection of the most interesting. There are more characters available such as currency symbols and shapes. Check out this article for more info.
