Hey does the 7130e support writing text messages longer than 160 characters? Many phones have that limit on the verizon network. I appreciate any feedback in advance

The 7130e limites SMS to 160 characters. Emails can be as large are you like. Hope this helps.

The 160 limit is a function of how the text messaging standard works... Any phones that exceed that limitation usually do so by using concatenated messages... Basically by sending multiple messages for anything over 160. This is network independent, not just verizon specific.
