@masterjo: SQLite Database Browser hasn't been developed since 2009 and it couldn't show anything from the .db file when I tried it today. Here's another SQLite browser that worked - sqlitestudio.one.pl

comment Combine/merge/concatenate/unsplit long SMS/text messages?
I came back to this question because StackExchange notified me that it had become notable yesterday. That is, over 2500 views. So yeah, real problem, that few seem to "get".

comment Combine/merge/concatenate/unsplit long SMS/text messages?
This is nice research into the history and tech details of SMS concatenation. The reality is that I receive messages split in parts of <160 characters. What I'm looking for is a very simple app that would let me select two messages and join them into one, specifying which should be first.

The messages I send aren't split. The problem is with messages I receive.
