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.

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.

New sony ericsson c510 only seems to send messages as MMS, and defaults to this function automatically. How do i send messages as SMS and ensure it defaults to SMS for future?


When writing sms make sure you not scrolling to the bottom (the bottom line switches sms to mms.) Also in Settings-Messages check TEXT MESSAGES - and see options.

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.

Incomming sms is not received in nokia 6030


Hi
there are only settings on the phone that will stop sending of messages, settings will not stop the receiving of messages (unless their mms - picture messages). I would suggest you speak to your network as it maybe something on your account at their end that needs fixing?
Incoming mesages (sms) are directed at your mobile number so the phone will receive them as you do a call.
Let us know how you get on?

Cant send sms on nokia 2688


Do you want to sent mms/sms. for sending mms you need to suscribe from your operator and save mms settings on your mobile.
For sms check your message center number with your network provider and input the number in your message setting option.
