I have a one question regarding fragmented text messages.

If the text message is fragmented must be each fragment a valid UTF-8 string or only complete defragmented message must be a valid UTF-8 string?
I.e. may I during receiving decode each fragment by UTF-8 and than join strings or do I need to receive all fragments and then decode only defragmented message?
