GSM alphabet

It is important to note that not all keyboard based characters are supported by the mobile networks protocol for SMS, as such we have put together a list of the GSM alphabet characters.

As a general rule if you send an unsupported character it will appear on a handset as the Latin character without the accent; so á will appear as a.
