Character Limit is the number of characters you can display in a USSD Menu. This depends on the Telco.
- Safaricom KE : 160 characters.
- Airtel KE : 184 characters.
For both Telcos if the menu is long they automatically break up the menu and adds the '98:More 00:Back' section etc ( this is sometimes referred to as automatic pagination)
The maximum number of characters expected in the user input(that is what the customer may enter in response to your menu) is
- Safaricom KE : 80 characters
- Airtel KE : 90 characters
