    I am getting text messages on my RAZR M that are cut off. I know because I sent it to my phone crime my e mail its chopping off half of the text.

    Any ideas why? What it is are directions to a fire hall so I can forward it to people that don't have smart phones with mapping available.

    Any thoughts or ideas? I am just using the texting that comes with the phone. I changed 1 setting from size 250 to 400 didn't seem to make a difference in my text. And not real sure what this setting is in text message settings that I changed labels message limit. Maybe this is outgoing not real sure.

    Is the keyboard in the way? Hit the (v) to get rid of it.
    If it was sent from an e-mail program, maybe that is the problem. Try pinching the screen?

    You can also change the overall font size in settings > display > font size. Not sure if this will help at all, but it's worth a shot.

    Is the message initiating from a phone or email? If from an email it'll get cutoff at 160 characters regardless, something in the Verizon way of doing things.
    If it's from a phone it should separate into multiple messages. I'd check with the sender and make what it's sent from.
    If it's coming from an email address I'd suggest have them send it to (your 10 digit phone number at vzwpix.com) .that'll make it turn into an mms message with a 1600 character limit.
    Hope that helps

    Once you receive it as mms you should be able to forward it to any phone with mms capability.
