    It's a 160 character limit per message, but just keep typing and the system will break it into multiple messages when it is sent. The person receiving the text will see multiple mesages.

    Install 'Go SMS Pro'

    It will interrogate the recipient's phone to see if their end will handle longer messages. If so, it is sent as one message. If not, it breaks it up also.

    I get both. Big long ones, and split messages.

    As AZ said you would have to use a 3rd party app. Otherwise the carrier is going to break it up.
