    The limit of 160 characters is not restricted to your Nokia 6600, it is
    the limit on ALL phones. That is the SHORT MESSAGE SERVICE protocol and
    it only allows for the 160 characters so that is all you can get.

    That setting, as far as I am aware, is controlled by your service
    provider? Maybe you should talk to them?

    Simon, maybe I am missing something here? On my old 6310i and on my
    Treo 650 I can send messages of 160 x 32 i.e 480 characters.

    I notice receiving such length messages seems to present a problem
    with the Palm Treo, whilst it did not with the old Nokia 6310i, for
    some reason.

    Each message of greater than 160 characters is split so that if you
    send a 'message' of 480 characters it's sent as three separate
    messages and consquently charged three times.
