Default SMS showing unreadable text

Please Login to Remove!

Hi All

I have a Wireless Blackberry 7250 and when I receive messages from overseas like Norway the text in the SMS is completely unreadable. Im currently in Australia and wondering whether there is a setting or something to make international text messages display correctly ? Anyone come across this problem before ?

Thanks

Are you sure they're not trying to send you an MMS (photo, etc) instead of a text message?!

I've only experienced this problem with my 7250 when someone tries to send me an MMS....

Are they sending it in the same language as what you have installed on the handheld? There are various language packs that the carriers release for the BlackBerry. If you don't have the language pack installed for the language that it's sent in, it'll appear as garbage.

This is not the only possibility, but it is one.

Default Problems with messages exceeding character limit

Hi All

I worked out that the strange unreadable text was coming through when I was getting multiple sms's. For instance when u go over the 160 characters on a normal mobile it links two messages together as 1/2 and 2/2. When I receive these messages on blackberry it comes as unreadable text in one message. Only messages less than 160 char are readable ?

Anyone have this happen or know how to resolve ?

Thanks
