    I never realized that. I googled it and foun Why Text Messages Are 160 Characters. It also explains that Twitter has 140, the other 20 is for the users name.
    Interesting.

    To the OP: Perhaps change to longer e-mail messages? Or wait until your phone stops beeping to make sure you receive the entire message throughout several text messages?

    Have the sender use MMS instead.
