Texts to iphones
So I'm sure this has been beat to death, but I haven't been able to find a definitive answer.
I recently made the (amazing) change from an iphone to a moto x. Very glad to be on android for tons of reasons.
However, the one issue I still have is when sending a long text to iphones, and the iphone user receiving a string of shorter texts (which aren't always in order)
On my end it's all one.. but on theirs it's all split up
I'm using Textra SMS with the option for splitting long texts de-selected, and I'm still having this issue
Has anyone found a solution to this? This is android.. based on linux... and on my linux machine I can do ANYTHING.. I would have to imagine the same would go for android.

Re: Texts to iphones
Yes, but remember, when sending a text to an iPhone (or any other phone, for that matter), you're using SMS. And SMS is limited to a certain number of characters per message (and remember, 'special' characters such as accented ones or foreign characters take up more space). iPhones don't usually see this problem because, when sending a text, they're actually using iMessage, not SMS.
And this is not an Android limitation. It's an SMS limitation. The blame that they arrive out of order it's actually on the carrier's side.

Re: Texts to iphones
Welcome to the forums!
Like SpookDroid said, SMS is limited to 160 characters per text. Usually the phone will automatically split the text message into multiple messages if it exceeds this limit. How long is the text?
