SMS being sent as chinese characters
Just started happening today, seems any SMS I send that are long messages (I assume more than 160 char) are received by the other party as garbled chinese characters. Using an iPhone 6, fully updated, but from what I'm reading doesn't seem to be an iPhone issue, but a carrier problem... Anyone have any ideas?
Welcome and thank you for your post !
This definitely sounds odd. Are your texts still being sent as Chinese characters?
I know you mentioned it started yesterday but has this ever happened before as well?
Please keep us posted.
I've been receiving strange characters that look Chinese/Korean on my phone . It happens after I sent a text. I have a Samsung S7 bought at a Rogers dealer store. It's not unlocked. The characters are not Chinese and I know cos I read Chinese! Lol
Characters look like this:
I've been getting it for a while now from different people.

That's definitely strange, are your still receiving SMS in Chinese characters?
Let us know if you continue to receive these messages.
Good morning. Yes - matter of fact it happened just this am when I sent a text to my Mom - almost immediately after sending the text - I get a text back with the Chinese characters...
