SMS problems - Imate PDAL

After resetting my hardware a few weeks ago I can only sms 70 characters (perviously I could sms 160) before going into the second message and the first sentence disappears when the text begins the second sentence. I can see it only once I arrow back to the first sentence. Can anyone help?

    Hi there,



    Thanks for your help. I'm not sure what a T9 is. I have an I-mate PDAL. None of the soft keys gave me a list of modes and I couldn't find them. Thanks though.

Hi,

I am assuming you are refering to T9. To turn it off you need to do the following:

When in new message screen.
Press the right soft key and a list of modes should appear.
Pick ABC mode for regular typing.


All the Best.

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

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.

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.

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.

Phone Not Vibrating/Lost SMS


Hi Rayan. Yes I'm afraid its a Hardware problem, or maybe you changed the settings and put off vibration accidentally.
If its a hardware problem it can be repaired under $8.
I'm afraid theres no way to get your sms back.
Please rate!!!
