Verizon SMS Break-Up?
So I noticed this morning that when I send or receive SMS Messages longer than 160 characters, my iPhone 4 breaks them up. My 3Gs on T-Mobile (3.1.3 FW) didn't break them up. They always sent and received all as one, no matter how long they were. THis happens using Bite SMS and the default messenger. I'm using FW 4.2.6 BTW and I DO have unlimited text and picture mai on my plan.

I've heard about this problem from a couple of people now, I haven't had it but it's definitely been a problem for people.
hope you find a solution!!

My 3G on AT&T does this as well. As far as I know it's a provider limitation.Avatar from Gunnerkrigg Court.

Verizon does this on all their phones. Not just the iPhone.

I just wonder how long it'll take others to figure this out. That split means people like me who aren't used to it are gonna hit their monthly limit a lot faster than they're used to, and I see some sticker shock coming. Good thing I got mine unlimited!

ASFAIK, whenever a text travels across carriers, it'll be split into separate messages. If it stays within the same carrier, it'll arrive as one text.
As for billing, I think even if a text arrives as one, if it's longer than 160 characters, it might be billed as multiple texts, though I'm not entirely sure on this. I have unlimited so it doesn't matter to me.

Yeah, I'm on unlimited too, so I'm ok with it. It's a small sacrifice for all I gained switching from T-Mo/3Gs to ViPhone 4.I'm a happy camper. I just wish they'd come in the right order!

I seem to have a problem where I get duplicate texts. I know it's on my side (T-Mobile) because it happens with all my friends, who all have different carriers.
