    160 Charater Limit in SMS Messages

    Advertisement



    I used to own a lg9800 and recently just got my BB 8703e for Verizon. On my preivous phone there was no 160 charter limit with the SMS messages as long as the message was to another verizon customer. My question is, has any way been found out to get rid of this limit and if so how. It is a HUGE annoyance as I email just about as much as I text message and it would be great if anyone would help me out here. Thanks!

    Not sure if it is a carrier limitation or an SMS limitation, but I have a 160 charater limit on my Cingular BB and Verizon E815.

    Thats odd. On my old phone I was able to go way past that. As long as it was directly to another Verizon Costumer.

    I think it may have either to do with Verizon and/or the 8703e. I am not sure which and am not good at fixing this stuff so I am looking for outside help.

    Even if we could determine if it was a phone issue or carrier issue I don't know much we'd be able to do about it.

    I think it's a carrier issue. I previously used a Treo 700w on Verizon and my SMS messages was limited to 160 characters.

    Re: 160 Charater Limit in SMS Messages

    Same with T-Mobile. Every phone I've had (except my SideKicks) has a limit of 160 characters per text. However, on my SideKick, that limit is stretched to allow a single text to be the equivalent of 20 text messages. It sends it in parts.

    About Concatenated Text Messages

    If you wish to compose a message that exceeds the maximum number of characters per message (approximately 160), you can do so simply by continuing to type past the maximum number. You'll know when you've crossed the limit by looking at the message count indicator below the message or at the Compose screen title bar. In the example shown below, the message has grown to the equivalent of two messages.
    When you send a long message, the message is broken into "parts", which are then concatenated (linked together) when the message is received. You can compose up to the equivalent of 20 messages. Note that your wireless operator may charge you for the equivalent number of messages.
