Mobiles that can send longer text messages?!?!

Banned 14 replies
Found 9th Nov 2008
My current sony ericsson only allows me 160 characters like the standard kind of phone will, but I have a friend who can send massive texts and I usually can't fit a lot into mine in reply. Is this feature only on certain phones?? If so which?? And is there a programme I can install on my mobile to get these desired longer texts with more characters to play with.

Rep given to all helpful replies.

Thanks in advance

I meant to fit in one text and not send as 1 of 2 etc.

What phone you got? Ive got phones 5/6 years old that will send longer texts than 160 characters, remember though that each block of 160 characters is charged as a single text.

Ah thats not going to happen i believe. It will send as one text but charge him/her as 2/3/4 etc:thumbsup:

I've got a Nokia 5310 which lets me send up to 1000 characters in a text. The person at the other end will receive it in one message but I will be charged for multiple texts. This is probably the same for a lot of phones.

Ah I see. Its just when I try to send long texts it has to send it as 2 texts. I would much prefer it being a unlimited message that will charge me as 2 or 3 messages. :?

1 text can sent so much only , my phone u900 soul when u type ur msg u can type as much as u want and it will tell u how msg it will be so hence when u sent for example 3 msg long so the other party will recieved it as 1. that is how it works . So when recieved msg from ur fren it probably cost them few msg anyway but you recieved it as 1 so you can read together at one go. if u know wat i mean.............

My sony erricson sends 2 messages but when the person recives them they just get them as one long message not two and same with my phone when i get a long message it goes into one text insted of two

yh i have a motorola nd if I dont switch on Enable long messages..it … yh i have a motorola nd if I dont switch on Enable long messages..it sends the messages as two parts..when its switched on..i can send it as one long message.....if that makes any sense....:?EDIT...ok I think I get what you mean...it will charge you for both texts even if it sends it as one....



Ye I get what you mean now. Is this the problem with SE phones restricting to sending longer messages as more than 1 message or just me being an idiot with my message settings??

You've cleared it up now. Its just I thought as the phone states 2 messages etc, it would be sent as 2 separate messages. Thanks for all your replies guys, much appreciated.
