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.
