Default I can't send a regular sms text message...

Please Login to Remove!

Phone: 9350
OS 7
Carrier: US Cellular

With the new os 7 I've found that I cannot send a continuous text. My limit is the regular 160 characters but then it goes over to a mms message. With my att bb curve 8350 os 6 I was able to send a sms message 7 pages long. Is this new in the os 7? I really hope this can be fixed somehow. I don't have good enough service to be sending out mms messages all day long. (Seeing as I text a lot and long messages too)

Some carriers will limit you to 160 characters. Maybe a call to your carrier will solve the problem and explain it?
