SMS reminder transliteration


In my settings I set "Number to send from" to "+1 647-931-5494 (Canada)". Now I have following issues:
1. I receive SMS reminders from several other phone numbers, not from that one. (Not a big problem)
2. Depending on number it was sent from, SMS reminders look differently. E.g.:
+79961444629: Reminder v Proverytj trubu v Home
+79127910759: Reminder ö Proverytj trubu ö Home
+440994590548: Reminder v!Proverytj trubu v!Personal
3. I'm fine with transliterated reminders, but there is any way to get them in Russian?
4. The biggest problem: from some numbers I receive broken reminders:
+444216565611: RJ5KfY2r¡Xì$JÖ7vJIKGNΞΔtdUΓVÅòä Δ=kV
+441290125830: RJ5KfY2r¡Xì$JÖ7vJIKGNΞΔtdUΓVÅòä Δ=kV
This should be the same reminder as above.

Thank you.

Hello Vladimir,

Unfortunately, it won't be possible to receive SMS with Cyrillic characters. In the past, we've received reports that they didn't contain any text at all so we've decided to transliterate them to at least make this service usable.

We weren't aware that some servers still send them out in an incorrect format, I have passed it to the developers now and we'll look into it.

Best regards,
