I have a Nokia Lumia 520 with WP8.1. I have never sent a TEXT message with it.

1) I have tried to send an SMS but I did not see a counter that would tell me how many characters I typed and what the maximum allowed number is (I guess it should be 160). How can I activate the counter?

2) I intend to write messages in a foreign language that has accented characters which will inevitably appear if I write the text using various suggestions of words that appear in the bar above the phone keyboard. I can use the English keyboard for writing directly without accents but a text with accents (no word marked with a red line) will tell me that there are no spelling errors.
I would like that the phone automatically remove the accents and leave just the basic Latin letters when the message is sent. How can I do this?
