    Default Sms converting to mms

    Pleaseeee help!!!
    For some reason last night when I inserted an emoji into my text it converted to an mms. This hasn't happened before as I have the Kii Keyboard and the handcent emoji plugin which is to send them through sms not mms.
    I cant't work out why its happened and it wont change back!!!!
    Please help

    How many characters are you sending. Check your SMS settings. You can turn the conversion off

    Go into the SMS app. Then press your menu key. Go into settings. Then scroll down. There should be a setting to covert to MMS after X amount of characters

    Ok. Try using the stock touchwiz keyboard. No emoji support. See what that does

    Try the stock mms app and see if it's doing it also.

    Had the same problem... and i foudn the solution...

    Go to the message application parameters.
    Open the "MMS creation mode" option. Set it to "FREE" ("libre" in the french version), the 3rd option.

    Create a sms, you see part going well up to 3, 4, 5, ...

    Solved ;-)

    Was creation mode taken out of the settings with the new update? Because I can't find it there.
