I just got my first Smart phone (Galaxy S II) and it splits up texts longer than 160 characters when I receive them. I often forward these long texts. Is there something I can do?


The following may work: download an app called SMS Backup+ from Play which backs up texts to Gmail. From there, it should be simple enough to forward.


in my experience the division of texts like this has more to do with the carrier. For instance, I am on T-Mo.. and texts I get from other T-Mo users are never split.

This is not a limitation of the device so much as it is a limitation with SimpleMessageSyntax
