I've been searching around Google and other forums and many people have their SMS messages converted to MMS after 3 pages, but as soon as I start typing my phone converts the SMS to an MMS even though I'm only halfway through one word! Even worse, this doesnt happen to everybody I text, just this one person I have found so far.

I'm running Gingerbread on a Xperia Neo and the other person has an iPhone 4 (not sure if that information has anything to do with it)

Any help is greatly appreciated.

You should have stumbled on the Android SMS creation mode setting on your searches. Did you try changing it to free? If that doesn't help, you could try an alternative SMS client, like Handcent. Handcent has an preference Settings -> Send message settings -> Auto-convert to MMS for this. – Flow Oct 2 '11 at 12:07
