My phone is sending every text message that I send out through SMS and it splits up my text message on the other end how do I stop this


SMS stands for SMALL Message System.

If you texts are as long as emails, they will be broken up. Long messages should go via email. Contact your carrier to ask what their character limit is on SMS. It should be 160 max.
160 characters Sending email to SMS is free for the sender, but the recipient is subject to the standard delivery charges. Only the first 160 characters of an email message can be delivered to a phone, and only 160 characters can be sent from a phone. Text-enabled fixed-line handsets are required to receive messages in text format.

Why text messages are limited to 160 characters

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.

I have a nokia c5 and when someone sends me a sms that is longer than one part, it comes through as separate texts, how do i fix this?


That cannot be fixed. SMS text messages are limited to 160 characters each. When the message exceeds 160 characters, it is automatically broken into separate texts. It's just the way SMS works.

My nokia 3110c mobile is getting hanged if i am opening contacts...and also cant see missed calls or received calls..calculaor has stoped workin..pls help me


HI there,
This problem comes when phone memory is full, Please delete or move any pictures or videos you have saved in phone memory to memory card, or external source via connecting to PC. Other possibility is that you have so many sms messages in your inbox, and normally when you switch on your cellphone, it will take around 15 to 20 minutes to load sms memory, and when you try to open inbox, It gives you error that memory not ready, Solution: Remove the sim card, and switch on the phone, wait until it fully initializes and takes phone memory intact, like when you are able to open sms messages, For checking free space in phone, Open Messages Go to options, > Memory status, it will show you the Total memory status of your phone, including free space, If you require your sms, take a backup on computer, via connecting your phone to Nokia PC Suite, and delete all unnecessary items in phone memory including SMS, in this phone there is a limitation of sms moving to memory card, so frree up space in phone memory and restart once, and you should be able to use phone features without any problem,
If you require more assistance, feel free to reply to this post,
Thanks for contacting FixYa!
Regards, BA

NEED MORE THAN 160 CHARACTERS FOR TEXTING WITH MY SAMSUNG INSTINCT S30. IS ANYTHING OUT THERE?


160 character limit is 1) a limit of SMS not the phone 2) Your phone should be able to send multiple texts or SMS messages if your character count goes over the 160 limit. I know my iPhone allows for it but my Blackberry Storm does not. You might think about using email to send larger messages as a whole.

Why do i have to send a text message that is bigger than the screen as more than one message can it be changed somehow ?


Can't be changed. There is a maximum character limit. On my phone is 160 characters, including spaces, symbols, number etc. It is sort of annoying but you cant change it.

Txt messaging becomes picture messaging without warning


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
