    I have a Verizon Note 4, I have had it for awhile actually but for the past few months my text with one specific person who is on ATT and has a iPhone 6 have been coming in weird. Something I have never had a problem with in the past, even with iPhone users. I know different carriers handle sending and receiving text different, and I've done a little bit of searching but couldn't find a clear answer to the situation.

    What happens is if she send me a long text message, it usually comes in broken into a lot of small text messages. I'm not talking the 160 character limit either, these come in smaller than that. If she sends a long text, I usually get 6-7 text, and they usually come in out of order.

    If this is a carrier issue and not a device specific issue is there anything I can do? Is there something that we could adjust in our devices so they send/receiver each others text normally? It seems to be splitting the text she sends at 60 characters. Note; most the time she uses emojis. I also read that emojis are handled different because of their size as well.

    Maybe someone here knows the proper settings for both devices. It happens with every texting app I have tried too. I've tried the default one, and I've tried Textra.

    Thank you for the help. I really appreciate it.

    It's an iPhone to Android issue. Apple knows about the problems (that's not the only one) but it doesn't look as if they're going to do anything about it - the next iPhone and the next version of iOS are sexy, "we fixed iMessage so our competitors' phones can talk to ours" isn't.
