1 Answer

My LG Renoir won't receive any messages if they are classed as 2 or more sms messages long (over 160 characters). Any messages that are under 160 characters come through fine. Any suggestions?

I think that the problem has something to do with the driver or a hardware defect in the phone.

LG Renoir has a 100MB built-in memory, plus the microSD external memory can be upgraded up to 16GB. So, I don't think that lacking of memory space is the cause of the problem.

Try to remove the battery from it, and leave the battery out for 5 minutes. Put the battery back on and reboot the phone.

If same problem occur, then you need to contact the manufacturer and verify if LG Renoir has a known issues with receiving SMS that contains 160 characters. If there's no known issues, then have them upgrade the firmware of the phone.

And that should fix the problem.

Thank you and good luck!

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

For my NOKIA hand set 1209, I am unable to receive sms having more that 160 characters.


Hello there,

If the message inbox of your phone is too full, the message will not be able to load beyond a page which is just 160 characters. Therefore, you will have to delete some messages from your phones inbox, messages that are not relevant, then the phone will be able to receive beyond the 160 characters.

Thank you for using fixya

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.

Palm centro won't receive multiple sms


Generally, 160 is the default limit for text messages. Some carriers will allow for up to 500 characters but that's usually within the same network (e.g. Verizon to Verizon). This is why text messages often use modified words (e.g. r u ok?, lol).

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
