Default Only 70 characters are shown at the time of composing SMS

Please Login to Remove!


I have BlackBerry 8520. When i compose any SMS or click 'reply' , it shows 70 / 1 of 6. But normal SMS characters are 160. So It shud show 160 character for SMS. I checked with my friends who have 9300 3G Curve. In his cell phone, its show correctly as 160 / 1 of 6.

Please help.

P.S: My connection is Loop Mobile.

Not sure about your service but you indicate 70 characters and this is for UCS2 scheme
if your number is correct. This is normal and does not offer 160 characters.
