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.

I cant send or receive pictures through my sms


SMS stands for short message service. Simply put, it is a method of communication that sends text between cell phones, or from a PC or handheld to a cell phone. The "short" part refers to the maximum size of the text messages: 160 characters (letters, numbers or symbols in the Latin alphabet). For other alphabets, such as Chinese, the maximum SMS size is 70 characters.

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.

It seems i have a restriction of 160 characters on my txt msg and if i go over that amount i am charged a multimedia rate by my provider.Can u help ?


All SMS messages are restricted to 160 characters, regardless of service provider. If you want to send a longer message then split it into more than one message or it will automatically be sent as a MMS.

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.

How do i send picture message on a htc


http://www.htc.com/uk/howto.aspx?p_id=283&id=36
this is a good how-to for a multimedia message, which includes pictures.
  1. Press HOME and then tap Messages.
    If the Messages icon is not on your Home screen, tap the All Programs button on the bottom-left corner of the Home screen and then tap Messages.
  2. On the All messages screen, tap Compose message.
  3. Enter the mobile phone number or begin typing the name of the message recipient in the To field. As you enter the phone number or name, matching contacts will appear on the screen. Tap a recipient to add the person to the To field. If no matching contact is found, enter the recipient's phone number.
  4. Tap the text box containing the text "Tap to compose," and then start composing your message. As you near the 160 character limit, a counter will appear in the top right corner of the text box to tell you how many characters are left. You can still continue composing your message if it exceeds 160 characters. A new message is automatically created and attached to your original message, and will appear as a single message to the recipient.
  5. Press MENU and then tap Attach.
  6. On the Attach window, select the type of attachment you want to send:
  • Picture. Opens the Albums application. Tap the album containing the picture you want to use, and then tap the picture to attach it to your message.
