    [ some text missing ]

    Advertisement



    the latest problem i am facing is, when i get a really big sms it says "[some text missing]", it is only after hours that that text is available. Basically to read that SMS i have to wait for hours. Is there any way i can solve this?

    How big is big?
    I know there is an auto retrieve for MMS, but I'm not sure about SMS.

    My phone will do that if I have low signa... But it doesn't take hours, just a min or two till I get signal again... Maybe there is a network issue or tower down in your area if the prob just randomly started....

    I get that too, I need to wait a few minutes. If I don't get it in a few minutes, I usually don't get it ever. I hate that it'll sometimes say text missing and then I'd get the text message separated rather than having one big text. :/

    SMS has a character limit of 160 so perhaps the characters over that limit are being dropped by your carrier? Most carriers will split an SMS with more than 160 characters into two messages, but perhaps that is not happening in this case.

    An MMS message is able to contain more characters than an SMS so have your friends try using that.
