HELP! Not receiving text messages! :(
I am with Virgin Mobile and I NEVER receive full text messages from friends - regardless of what company they're with or what phone they have. I'll get part 1/2 or part 2/2 but never both! It's SO annoying. After talking with Virgin today, they cant do anything about it. It's a network issue and according to the ever-so-helpful guy on the phone - it will probably never change. The network will only allow my phone to receive 140 character messages, which is fine, but the rest never comes? WTF!! Any advice on what I can do.. if anything?!??! :S
Not all carriers permit SMS messages to be over character limit, some will go to a second message but not all will do this. If you carrier says that's a limitation with their network, then ask your friends to send messages within the limit then they can separately send a second one if they have more to say.
