no. thats just your carrier most likely charging you more than once for a single SMS
sometimes providers will allow you to type up to 3 SMS messages in one and send. on the other end, it comes out in 2 or more messages, usually prefixed with 'cont.' for continued on the latter of the messages.
EMS is basically the middle stepchild of SMS and MMS. it allows you to do pictures, etc. if a provider is offering MMS, then its better, imo, than EMS.
