Why does my incoming messages get cut off. Is there a limit on how many characters are allowed?

I believe there is still a character limit. I think it used to be 160 characters per simple SMS message and is 1600 characters with modern phones & modern carrier networks. Anything over that is typically split up and will be displayed as 2 (or more) messages on your end.

Tapanga1,

 

I want to do all I can to provide helpful insights. What messaging app are you using? Is this happening to all contacts, or only some?
