Long SMS

Send SMS longer than 160 characters in a single request.

Sending a long SMS is not that different than sending a standard SMS. Request is the same, and the only difference is that you submit text longer than 160 characters. Your response will contain `smsCount` field that will indicate how many parts your message was split into. Message will be charged by the number of its parts. The example below shows a long SMS request: [block:code] { "codes": [ { "code": "POST /sms/1/text/single HTTP/1.1\nHost: api.infobip.com\nAuthorization: Basic QWxhZGRpbjpvcGVuIHNlc2FtZQ==\nContent-Type: application/json\n\n{ \n \"from\":\"WineShop\",\n \"to\":\"41793026727\",\n \"text\":\"Wine has been produced for thousands of years, with the earliest wines being drunk c. 6000 BC in Georgia.
