SMS billing

This page presents all pricing information related to Autopilot’s SMS messaging service, which is provided through the Phone numbers add-on.

All prices and costs listed in the table below are:

  • indicated in US$, and

  • billed on a monthly basis.

For pricing purposes, a single SMS message consists of one or more SMS segments, where each SMS segment contains up to:

  • 160 standard encoded (GSM-7) characters only, or

  • 70 universal coded character set (UCS-2) characters (supporting non-European characters, emojis, etc.)

Autopilot charges for SMS usage by the block of 1,000 SMS segments.

Each country listed in the table below has a different SMS credit requirement per block of 1,000 SMS segments that Autopilot sends and receives. Therefore, each country incurs a different cost per block of 1,000 SMS segments.

  • Each mobile number you purchase:

    • incurs its own line rental price, and

    • includes one block of 1,000 SMS segments.

  • If you anticipate requiring the need to send and receive more than 1,000 SMS segments per mobile number per month, use the How many SMS credits will you need per month? box on the Update plan page to add more blocks of 1,000 SMS segments to your monthly quota.

  • If you exceed your SMS segment quota for a given month, then you are automatically allocated and charged for the same number of blocks of 1,000 SMS segments (specified in the How many SMS credits will you need per month? box), which is billed to you for your next monthly billing cycle.
