  • Other Cost Information

    • SMS Messages can be sent a 1, 2 or 3-part messages. The vast majority of messages are 1-part messages within 160 characters. The group can control the message length for Garda messages and force all messages to be within 1 credit at all times. This is a popular feature that ensures your SMS costs are reduced.
    • It is possible to filter incoming Garda messages so that they are initially only sent to the group managers/committee. If the message is valid for your locality then you can forward it on to our service for all your members. However, if the alert relates to a faraway place then you can ignore it. This means you will not waste SMS messages for irrelevant Garda alerts.
