    Default Long text messages turn into pic messages

    I just got the mesmerize yesterday. I absolutely love it.

    However, today I was sending a longer text message. Now I know one SMS message is limited to 160 chars. On my old phone, I would have to send it then continue the message in another SMS. I know some phones automatically break it up as you're typing to allow you to complete the whole message.

    However, today, when I typed a longer message, it let me keep typing. When I sent it, the person receiving it said it sent as a Picture message.

    I don't have free pic messaging so is there any way to stop this? or to get a character counter?

    Try using a different SMS app like handcent or go SMS. Those might ficlx this problem.

    As I'm new to the android market potential still, I was unaware that there were other SMS apps.

    This is amazing. I went with go SMS. It fixed my problem and splits up the messages into multiple when I go over 160 chars.
