Default Re: Finally have a problem with the Style or maybe its just Sprint

Here's the deal.

CDMA carriers do not support Extended SMS on BlackBerry.
CDMA carriers DO support Extended SMS on other devices.
GSM carriers support Extended SMS on BlackBerry and on other devices.

On Sprint, the message can only be 160. It will NOT be automatically broken up into multiple messages.

Your options are 1) just create a new message when you reach the limit, 2) use MMS and you will get 1000 characters, 3) use email or 4) use an app such as Textender or Beyond160 to send longer SMS.
