    Why don't you send as a iMessage? Other party on a non Apple device? Also make sure SMS is off if using iMessage. That way only iMessages fail they won't send. But if it is turned on it will use your SMS limit.

    Have you contacted your carrier to discuss the issue?

    The length of the SMS message varies by provider (or it used to) - anywhere from 140 to 160 characters. As John Yester suggested, why not avoid the whole mess and just use iMessage, where possible?

    Also, who is your service provider? I don't know anyone who is still using a "per message" text plan. Almost every carrier offers unlimited text, either for a reasonable rate or as part of the new shared plans. With most of the shared plans, you buy a bucket of data to share and get free voice and text included. Might be time to shop around, so you don't have to bother with counting SMS messages sent/received.
