SMS 160 character limit and out of network sms/mms
So whenever an SMS is being sent and exceeds 160 characters, vzw conveniently reminds you:
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
I am fresh from AT&T so I just want a little clarification... does this mean that I cannot send MMS to out of network people? does this mean if I type out say 180 characters, that the last 20 do not automatically send in a 2nd message? I had the iphone so it always made it seem that your message whether 20 characters or 500 always went through as a lump sum batch, yet I know it just broke it down into several sms's. Can someone clarify the above questions for me?
