how to write long sms
Is there a way to have my bb automatically split my sms into 2-3-4-infinity number of SMSs if i want to write a long one?
I'll try to explain further... If i want to write an SMS i often run out of characters and have to go and compose a new one and send it separately. I have some friends who send me a text and they can make it as long as they want and it will automatically split into parts with the appropriate number of characters.
Is there a setting in my 8830 to do that?
Good question. I would also love to know that. i hate having to compose another text just to finish what
i was saying

it will automatically split it into upto 6 messages. Mine does anyway. Maybe it's a CDMA limitation, because on every GSM Blackberry I've had (I've only had GSM), it will split it into upto 6 messages.
Ya Sprint wont let more than 160, or splitting the messages, it is such a pain!
it's always greener with the other carrier...
Why does everyone forget the first S in SMS stands for Short? If you need to send a long message it should be an email, not an SMS.
My humble 2 cents. ;-)

VZW splits texts, just not on a BB. Sprint does not.
a blackberry is a tool. a treo is a toy
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
Awww its odd that the blackberry wouldn't do this though..all my past phones (not bb's) and my friends' phones have this capability.
But I guess an sms is supposed to be short and besides the blackberry has a superb email functionality (;
