We count every character in a variable. If you have a message that is 152 character in length and the name that is inserted into the variable is 9 characters in length you will be charged for 2 SMS (152 + 9 = 161).
We suggest that you find the longest name in your list and keep enough spare characters in your message to allow for it.
