    Hi

    My Note 9 keep converting longer texts to MMS, I have gone onto message app setting and under multimedia have set to "restricted" and "warning" both have no impact and convert!

    I have tried deleting app cache and data then change setting with no luck.

    What can I do to prevent the phone converting?

    Any help appreciated.

    Write shorter messages or use a different SMS app.

    It's a limitation of SMS messaging itself. Some texting apps can detect and make a long MMS message appear like an SMS, but it still sends as MMS.

    Not really. Some SMS apps just support longer stitching. I know this because MMS costs different in my country and SMS is free, and I can send a 23 part long message free using Textra. They just support more stitching repeats.

    With Textra you can convert long SMS to MMS in the settings

    I think the point was preventing that.

    Thanks. I am now using Google messages app which has helped write longer messages without converting. In the stock app you can change to "GSM alphabet" which allows for longer texts.
