Are you sure the receiver enjoys your 250 character text??
Sometimes you do need to type more than 160 characters, and having the ability to type it in one window where it then tells you that you have created 3 160 character messages; as opposed to composing and sending 3 seperate messages is easier.
And as drummer boy pointed out, yes there is MMS, but not everybody has a phone that can recieve MMS (yes you may think I sound stupid, but its true, I know 2 people who still have a very basic phone for very basic use)
