Texts split at 160 chars
Stop the texts from splitting up at 160 chars and send them as one long message
This should be fixed in our recent Android App Release 1.85 – please install and let us know if it’s better!
@cesaro "The messages need to be split like this on CDMA networks like Verizon and Sprint or else the second part of the message comes through as gibberish"
So? It would still be a problem if the phone directly sent the long SMS, right?
@firehanf - the default messaging app is showing the "large sms" as one, but its most likely sending multiple messages.
to test this out -- send a long sms from your phone to someone who does *not* have a smartphone....or send it to a google voice #. you should see it split up.
I could not really follow your explanation of the 160 character splitting. Of course it will send them individually but if I send my a large sms (more than 340 characters) with the default app i see it as one sms and the reciever recieves it as one sms too....
+1 for csimmons22's comment here. Would help very much!
Perhaps the counter (next to the "compose" box) should start counting down from 160, instead of 500? Or have both counters, one from 500 and one from 160, both running down with each keystoke? Or... to steal an idea from another app i've seen... have it count down from 160, and when it reaches 0, if you keep typing, it starts counting down from 340!
The phone is sending texts as 160 characters. If the receiving app is "smart" it will combine on that end.
