Cool SMS - the length

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everybody

I've got a problem with my bb javellin. I don't know if every javellin has it as well, or it's a problem of a setting.

The problem is that sms messages are so short comparing to my previous Nokia or to BB curve 8300 of my friend. The number in the right up corner shows 70/ 1 of 6, so the first message can have only 70 signs, then the second 63 signs, the third 66 signs and so on, shouldn't be there longer? If yes, how can I change it?

thanks in advance )
