Jellybean SMS to MMS conversion too quick
I've been using Jellybelly 3.9 for a week. This ROM is a straight port of stock Jellybean, and I have none of the optional add-ons installed. So I guess this is a stock Jellybean question as well.
When writing SMS, I noticed that in the past Android used to parse the message into up to 3 SMS messages before converting to MMS. Now, it usually will convert to MMS after one message length has been reached. Occasionally it will stretch it over 2 SMS.
This is a problem for me because I have always noticed that MMS is less reliable than SMS, even if it's all text.
I have scoured the settings for this but I can't find it. Anyone know if this was a change from ICS to Jellybean?

No, this has been around for a long time, and it just depends on which ROM you are running. Unfortunately, if it's a stock ROM, the menu to disable the 'converting to mms' has been removed, kind of a really.
Two ways to fix it, flash a custom Messaging APK. An old ICS should work okay but just beware because some of them are a bit hit and miss.
Install BigSMS from Play Store. Basically, an app designed to fix this. It works on , Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, ICS and Jelly Bean no problem.
