    Annoying text notifications

    Hi,

    Anybody else get this annoying text notification every time they send out a text to non-verizon users? "900080004221: FREE_VZW_MSG: Messages sent to non-VZW customers with graphics/tones/formatting and/or 160+ characters are sent as plain text with only the first 160 characters"

    Please tell me how to turn this off. It is so useless and a pain. Thanks.

    I only got it once when I sent a text to someone on AT&T. Got the notification once and that's it. It surprised me too since I am a new customer at Verizon. Kinda dumb to put a 160 character limit without splitting it into two text messages.

    I know for a fact that AT&T splits a 160+ character message into two messages as I was a customer less than a month ago. I think even T-Mobile does the same.

    Thats not a DROID only thing. Ive had verizon for 3 years and whenever you text out of the network you get that text. You can't turn it off... It's just there to remind you that you can't send over 160 to other networks. Blame Friedhelm Hillebrand for the limit.


    Also you keep on getting it because you keep on trying to send 160+ characters to non verizon people. just stop at 160 and u won't get it

    Using an app like Handcent will fix that for you. It automatically splits your messages into two if you go over the 160 character limit. Plus its much more customizable and gives you a popup notification when the phone is in standby

    Yeah handcent if you enable it to, will autosplit messages up after 160 characters, so it will send multiple sms's to people, like most other networks.
    Resistance is futile.
