Txt messaging becomes picture messaging without warning

After 140 characters of txt the symbol on the top left hand side becomes a picture messaging symbol and when you send it, it says "connecting" on the screen and if the person you are sending it to does not have picture messaging they can not view your txt, but why is it doing this when i have not even attached a picture?

It is doing this because most carriers only support 140-160 characters per sms message.  Once you are over your carriers limit per message the phone is made to change it from an sms to an mms message.  Naturally when you send media it goes through mms so that is the default symbol for mms on your phone.  MMS supports up to 1000 characters per a message.  So in order to continue using sms you need to keep your messages at 140 characters or less including spaces

Why are my emoticons not showing up on my phone and why when I send one text to someone, they receive more than one, sometimes four?


If you send a long message it will be sent as multiple messages. I think te message length is about 140 characters. If your message is longer than that it will be broken into 140 character chunks, resulting in several messages.

Why is my brand new Alcatel phone putting in strange symbols when I send a text if its more than 160 characters?


My Samsung cell phone limits me to 140 characters so this is not unheard of. I split my messages to under 140 and ask people who need to write a veritable epistle to do so by email because my phone cuts vital pieces when it chops messages up on receipt.

Your message when I try to send. Please use only legal characters! What in the above is an illegal characters?


Hi

Usually illegal characters are symbols, punctuation marks, question and exclamation marks, dots, tildes, etc.

Make sure you are only typing a to z characters without ? and 0 to 9 numbers.

Hi. Regarding sms/txt. When I exceed 450 characters it automatically converts the sms/txt to mms. How can I prevent this? Sms is cheaper than mms when you send it.


You are speaking of SMS concatenation....


By default, all SMS traffic is limited to 160 characters per message.


Depending on the handset and the carrier, if you go over 160 characters the handset may automatically send a second\third message to the recipient to finish the complete message.

Slightly older phones would automatically go to MMS after 160 characters,

Much older phones won't even give you the option of going over 160 characters in one SMS message.


So most likely, the 450 limit is a limit hard coded into the phone.

No good pictures


The symbols you are seeing are the blur warning indicators.

The yellow hand warns you that the picture may not be quite sharp enough for a standard 6" x 4" print - however you may be happy with it.

The red hand warns you that the picture is most likely to be poor quality, and won't produce a good 6" x 4" printed photo.

The reason you're getting these indoors, is that there's not enough light for the camera to take a good picture. As it tries to do so, it opens the shutter for longer to let more light in - however on doing so, if the camera isn't absolutely still, then the warning symbols will come on.

To remedy the above I'd have the following suggestion - if possible and practical, when shooting indoors, try and rest the camera on something solid when taking a photo. If this is not possible - try leaning against a wall to stabilise yourself. Even though you think you are holding the camera still - it's moving quite a lot.

Try one hand held photo - and one photo with the camera resting on something solid like a table and see what the difference is.
