    I like to know how are SMS messages encoded.
    What encoded is used ? UCS-2 ? UTF-8 ?
    Possible scenarios: (1) simple ASCII text; (2) characters from ASCII
    combined with some from ISO-8859-x; (3) all Asian text; (...)

    I only found a page here
    but it does not explain what happens with other Unicode characters.
