    texting issue/question

    Verizon only allows 160 characters per text msg to non-verizon phones, yet the Droid allows you to continue typing past 160, probably in the case you send to another verizon phone. Question is, why won't verizon allow the whole message to be sent and just put anything past 160 characters into a new msg? My friend has an Iphone and when she sends me a text that is more then 160 characters, then I get multiple text msgs from her. However, if I send her one with more than 160 characters, anything past 160 does not send at all. It seems like it should be such an easy fix for Verizon to do.

    vzw problem. It's honestly a stupid problem. Didn't you get a notice saying that non-vzw customers only get the first 160 characters? I do...


    really lame "limit" considering most of us pay for texting, especially to the ones who have "unlimited" texting.

    Yeah, I get this msg after I send a msg with 160+ characters. I just think it's retarded that all the other carriers can do this and break it up into multiple msgs, and vzw seems to be the only one that just cuts off anything after 160. It's so freakin stupid on their part. It was better when I had my Palm 700W because at least on that phone after 160 I could save it into a draft and then continue with a new msg. With the Droid, you can only save one msg into a draft since there is not a dedicated "save to draft" feature like there is when creating an e-mail.

    I believe apps like Handcent will automatically split the message up if you go over 160 characters.

    yes, Handcent will break it up, and if it's over 3 splits i think it'll convert it to an MMS as well.

    np! others with non-droid phones are also welcome, so long as they don't throw mashed potatoes with their sporks!
