    Default Text messages sending wrong

    Lately when I send texts to my wife the end of the message comes through as something other than what I wrote. It's only on her end.
    I compared what my phone says to what hers says and somehow words are being messed up in transit.

    Do you have your message app setup to split messages over 160 characters. Sprint uses a cdma network. cdma networks can only send sms messages under 160 characters in length. If you go over 160 characters it just sends random garbage. Gosms has a setting to automatically split the messages into several messages for cdma networks. I am not sure if the stock messager app has that ability or not.

    We are both using stock apps. The only thing I see in settings is about auto-combination. It was checked so I unchecked it.
    I'll have to look at her phone and see what it has.
