    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?

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