Hello,

Today I try to LOCATE my phone to test its functionality, then I got broken SMS that contains invalid URL like "https://ta-m.avast.com/maps.srv?l".
I found its cause, some Japanese cell-phone carriers (including mine) uses non-standard SMS systems (100/140 bytes maximum) so the length of reply exceeded this limit.

So here I suggest to add settings to use shorten URL, or to use E-mail instead of SMS.
Also this could avoid troubles regarding translations, because translated SMS strings could be longer than original and exceed SMS limit.
