    Why does the phone steal characters the longer the length of txt u type
    compared to single txts of 160 characters. Its annoying. And to send singly
    how do i let the recipient know the message is to be continued???

    Re: sms length

    I think the 'missing' characters are used to add bits of coding to say it's
    a multi-part text (the bit that says 'linked (1/2)' on older phones.

    Re: sms length

    This is by design. The additional characters are needed to put the
    message back together on the other end. Not sure about other carriers
    but I've noticed that even when I send a multi-part SMS that T-Mobile
    USA has only ever charged me for 1 SMS regardless of length. The wife
    and I will regularly send calendar appts, contacts and long SMS that
    are easily 3 SMS, but we've never been charged for more than one. Of
    course that matters even less since we got unlimited SMS when they
    offered it a while back.
