I just got the Kin TwoM, and I noticed that my longer texts are being sent as many separate texts...much like it used to be when an AT&T user would text you a long message. Is there some sort of setting or way around this? Last thing I need is irritating people by being THAT GUY who sends messages like that.
My phone is only a couple of days old so I've been reading the manual and it states:
Type message to open the text box and type your message. You can type up to 800 characters.
My messages are also being split up when I know I am not doing a hard return and have nowhere near 800 characters. I'm not sure what's going on here but I'd also like an answer. I just checked the manual and it clearly states an 800 character allowance. I wonder if it has something to do with the limitations of the receivers device? Too bad I can't forward one of "those" broken messages to myself to see. There is also no copy paste option that I can find so I can paste one in a new message to myself. Any clues?
I know I've sent messages to a Droid 2 with a 160 character limit so maybe it's not our device at all it just fragments it into the correct character limit for the receiver?
It cuts off after 4 lines in portrait (3 in landscape) so if we're texting about 40 characters per line then it's the limitation of the receivers phone, not ours. Droids ... With their fancy data plans can't take a screen shot or receive an 800 character text without having it truncated.
I Love my KIN!
Quote from a Droid Forum:
when somebody sends me a long text over 160 letters it gets cut off and then i get a second text saying "preceding message was modified to comply with this handset. media objects were moved" how can i change it so i get the wholde message i dont care if its in two texts i just cant stand not knowing the rest of the text.
I suppose the polite thing for us to do would be to limit our texts to 3 lines in landscape (4 in portrait) and just send them an e-mail if we want to say more ...
