I think another good option would be to allow us to make it count upwards to 160 (e.g 1/160) and then count how many messages it will come out to (e.g 1/160 ).
Hi there – are you still seeing this issue at the moment? If so, please respond to this message and we will gladly look into this.
Certain phones show and do different things.
A phone will show one giant text bubble/box of lets say, five 160 character long messages. If you sent it to the same carrier, it will send it all in one to them. If you sent it to a different carrier, it will split the messages into multiple ones but it will show on your screen that it was sent all in one. You can fix this by adding in a blank subject to turn it into an MMS message (or by adding a picture) and get unlimited characters that way. Some phones do this automatically.
As for MightyText literally splitting your messages, I agree they need to fix that.
