    The 160 character split on Handcent (v4.9.1) isnt working properly. I've has the same prob with 4.5.2 also. Im going to show you what I entered and how Handcent split it up.

    Teachers - Let me know if you need a "Youth Conference Personal Gear List". Please bring 10 to cover my copy expenses (gotz to pay the bills somehow) if you already received one but lost it. ;-) Remember, your honor is on the line, so be truthful. Come by my house at 7PM tonight to pick one up.

    This is friggin' ridiculous. I hope someone can offer some advice.

    Thanks.

    EDIT: The counter at the lower left of where you type the mesage said (34/67)5. So for some reason it broke it down into 67 character messages.

    Copy and paste the text into your handcent program to see if it does it on your end too. Thanks.

    I found the problem. The sign is what changed the character count limit from 160 to 67. I checked it on gosms and stock. Very interesting.
