And if you change the SMS network to GPRS will it use data and not go against your text message plan???

Options > SMS Text > Data Coding

The point of this post is that there is that I can not find this option under SMS.

Maybe the 8830 doesn't have it. The 8820 does. What does it do if you change it to UCS2?

I want to send SMS in Chinese, I figured out a way of input Chinese on my 8830, but the characters are all messed up in SMS, it's fine in e-mail and other places. I checked online, they all asked to change the SMS "data coding". SO....:?

Depends on your carrier. Not all carriers support SMS via GPRS.
