A lot of the reason why I don't use MMS for a situation like this is that ofen times I don't intend to go over the character limit at the begining of a message, but it ends up running long. Plus, like I said, I love the SMS setup on 5.0, and would like to use it (and not CrunchSMS, as mentioned before). And would using MMS come through looking like a PIX MSG on a non-BlackBerry user's phone? That's what it does whenever someone sends me a PIX MSG or pic through MMS when I respond. I always close their message and reply with an SMS.

I was mainly looking for a hint/tip/trick within the actual SMS area...thought I might be missing something. I don't understand why the "Save as Draft" was done away with. When you click the Escape key in the middle of a message, it does automatically save your message, which is nice...but if you try to start up a fresh message with a list of the same recipients, it takes you back to your original message. So as far as I can tell, there isn't a way to do what I had described earlier.

It's not a huge deal by any means. Just thought I'd see if I was missing something.
