Not a big deal, just saying that just because you can send it that way doesn't mean the people your sending to can receive it that way.
Yes, there are 3rd party applications such as Beyond160. It's been a while since I've used it but I believe it works with the native SMS app, it just breaks the message into multiple messages, each 160 characters.

I also see this as a non-issue. For me at least. It's not something I would leave a carrier for, especially if I get good coverage and good rates with that carrier. But, to each their own.
The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.
