Android Central Question

I have a Pixel 2 with Sprint. If I get a text that is too long, where it would normally be broken up into multiple texts, I never get the rest of the text. I wasn't too concerned with it until I needed to set up Gmail forwarding to my text for an alert, and Google sends the phone a verification code. That code was cut off halfway through and the rest never comes in. Same thing with having twitter forwarded to my phone, I only get 2/3 of the average message.

I have played with the settings in both android Messages and the phone settings but I cant find anything that makes a difference. I have also tried switching my default messaging app to Facebook Messenger and it still cuts it short, so I have a feeling this is either a phone setting I am not seeing, or a carrier issue.

Sounds like a carrier issue. Those confirmation code messages from Google aren't THAT long; IIRC they're standard SMS length, so they shouldn't be chopped off.
