    In coming from an iPhone and imessage would send a text in one whole piece but now that I'm using SMS, I have a character count if 70 per text. The issue I'm having is sending links. If they are too long, the person will get a 2 piece text with broken link. Any ideas?

    SOLVED: under settings>messages>test messages>input mode

    I had unicode selected thus it was tapering it down to compensate. Back on auto and all is Good!

    You could try using Google Hangouts. I don't think that has the character limit.

    SMS messages can be 160 characters. Could you be sending a SIG line or emoticon?

    It's only showing me an allowed 70 characters. I'm trying to look for settings that may be causing this

    Are you using the stock messaging app? You should have 160 characters to work with.
