SMS with accented characters

When I am writing SMS using accented characters (e.g. á à í è) the phone will convert the whole SMS to unicode. That makes each character use two bytes instead of only one byte. Obviously, when that happens each character will count as two.

The result is, for example, that a SMS with 81 characters will be reported as having 162, and the message being break into two SMS, when one would be more than enough. I'll be charged for two SMS :P

Does anyone have the same problem?

Is there a fix?
