  5. Once you have selected the character-set to be used as the default for your account, select Save Changes.

Note: This is only applicable for SMPP. Vonage REST API uses WEB standard UTF-8. This setting only takes effect for SMSC default alphabet (DCS=0). Whenever the data_coding is not 0, it will be replaced with the coding schema specified in data_coding.
