    Elrey, that's typical. SMS's are typically limited in size. BB Messenger on the other hand, is not.

    Sure -- just get Sprint to replace their SMS system.

    I feel your pain. I was on T-Mobile with the 8700g which allowed something like 900 plus charecters. I switched to Verizon and the 8703e and now am limited to only 160 (needed to switch to get coverage in a couple of places that T-Mobile had problems with, also like the faster internet access)
