When I first got my Blackberry Bold about 3 weeks ago, I was able to send longer texts that were then broken into parts (1 of 2, etc). It did this automatically: at the top it would list how many characters of 160 were left, then said 1 of 6 (I assume the text could be broken into as many as 6 separate messages if it was really long). I needed to reboot the phone recently, and when I did, this "1 of 6" option was gone on my texting. Now it just lists the 160 characters. HELP!! I end up sending longer texts every now and then, and REALLY miss the ability to just keep typing as opposed to typing/sending and then typing/sending over again. UGH!! Thanks for your help.
Why don't you send text messages, in MMS format. (Pictures and videos with text) If you have MMS plan you can do it that way. Then don't have stop, and text again, when reach limit.
