Sms sends as mms

I am on a contract with unlimited texts. however if i send a long text, that is longer than 2 messages long, the phone converts it automaticlly to a mms message which i then pay for. This is despite activating the option "send long texts as sms". Also the text length seems to change. Sometimes one text is 160 characters long, and oter times it is only 60 characters long. any suggestions?

My android Samsung phone will not send sms to one contact but it will send mms what's wrong


It means that the person you are sending to either has an older phone that will not accept multimedia messages or that there contract plan does not include MMS. If it is the other way around, you need to contact your cellphone provider, unless your texts are over 140 characters..

Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) is a standard way to send messages that include multimedia content to and from mobile phones over a cellular network. Users and providers may refer to such a message as a PXT, a picture message, or a multimedia message.[1] The MMS standard extends the core SMS (Short Message Service) capability, allowing the exchange of text messages greater than 160 characters in length. Unlike text-only SMS, MMS can deliver a variety of media, including up to forty seconds of video, one image, a slideshow of multiple images, or audio.
The most common use involves sending photographs from camera-equipped handsets.[citation needed] Media companies have utilized MMS on a commercial basis as a method of delivering news and entertainment content, and retailers have deployed it as a tool for delivering scannable coupon codes, product images, videos, and other information.
The 3GPP and WAP groups fostered the development of the MMS standard, which is now continued by the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA).

Sms messages are changing to mms


In some devices the message type gets converted from SMS text message to MMS multimedia message if the message length exceeds the device-specific setting which is typically 5 - 10 SMS submessages (around 760-1520 characters). If the message is longer, it is converted to MMS to avoid potential issues in handling long text messages in the recipient device. The cost of a SMS message consisting of several concatenated submessages may also be higher than the cost of a single MMS message.
The conversion from SMS text message to MMS multimedia message occurs when the automatic message type is selected in the message options. This is the default mode where the device tries to automatically select the best mode for the message.
The conversion from SMS to MMS can be avoided by selecting Options > Sending options > Message type > Text when in the Text message window writing the message. The message is then always sent as SMS text message and no conversion to MMS occurs.
The maximum number of concatenated SMS submessages can be up to 10 (around 1520 characters). In multimedia mode the message length can be longer.

this is not really a problem but understanding should be clear:
Multimedia Messaging Service(MMS)

MMS is a descendant of SMS (Short Messaging Service). MMS extends text messaging to include longer text, graphics, photos, audio clips, video clips, or any combination of the above, within certain size limits.

MMS is frequently used to send photos and videos from camera phones to other MMS phones or email accounts. Most camera phones have MMS, but many non-camera phones have it as well.

if it has a photo, video or audio it will automatically be categorize as MMS
While SMS stands for short message service. SMS is also often referred to as texting, sending text messages or text messaging. The service allows for short text messages to be sent from one cell phone to another cell phone or from the Web to another cell phone. purely text:

Sending all texts as mms instead of sms.


clean up ALL your messages.
For some reason when you are full up on messages instead of telling you it will just start sending MMS instead of SMS messages.
Just got to Menu > Messaging > Options > Cleanup Messages > All
After that, it will start sending SMS again.

How do I send pictures through SMS text on my blackberry Curve through sprint?


You can't. To send pictures or other media, you must use the MMS (Multimedia Message Service) option. Just use the option menu button in the messaging application and choose Compose MMS. After selecting the recipient, click the menu button again to add things like pictures, videos, etc. to the message. Note that sprint includes the ability to send media in your data plan, but your recipient may get charged for the message. Some carriers, even Sprint, don't include MMS in there unlimited messaging plans but rather expect you to send the picture as SMS which the Blackberry Curve can't do.

Messages > Settings > Text Message > "Send long text as"

If your text is longer than 2 pages, it'll try and send as MMS automatically if you haven't changed it when you had the phone. So if your phone isn't set up for MMS it'll refuse! lol.

SONY ERICSSON K850I


As sms is text only, people will get text messages only. To convert the smiley-characters into smiley images, the receiver should have support for emoticons, or have a 3rd party program to translate the emoticons. As most phones consider SMS as text messages, they won't convert them to emoticons...

You could try sending a message to yourself, or someone else with a k850i...Just to try.
