    Long SMS are automatically converted into MMS?

    I am experiencing a strange problem. Whenever I try to post long message, It is automatically converted into MMS but nothing happens in case of short message. So can I stop this from happening. If yes then How?

    Hello Friend,

    You are not the alone to face this kind of problem.This is due to limitation in SMS technology.You can compose SMS at max 480 characters mainly because of the huge amount of data involved and any SMS gerater than that would be converted into MMS.If you want to send your SMS as SMS only you can try these settings

    Go to Messages >>>>> Menu >>>>> Settings >>>>> Creation mode. After that choose select Restricted.However it would only prevent SMS from converting into MMS.You still won't be able to send huge messages.

    For Sending long Text Messages Try apps like :-

    1)BigSMS

    2)HandCent SMS

    3)GoSMSPro

    However you'll stil have to tinker with the settings of these apps to prevent them from converting into MMS.

    Example:- If you want to use Handcent then Go to Handcent >>>> settings >>>>> send message settings and after that uncheck "auto convert"

    Hope It Helps!

    Don't forget to Leave your valuable Remarks

    Hello friend


    Problem with SMS technology is :-


    If messages have 480 characters or more then they will be converted into an MMS. This is a restriction,according to me.


    Reason is : data limit.


    In fact, if you notice, the limit is 160 characters per SMS but current TRAI rules allows you to string (160 * 3) blocks together in one message. So, it is upto the receiving device to put the 3 blocks together as they were composed.


    So, either break up your messages into 480 character set or send an e-mail instead.




    You can also try to limit the messages to sms only by following the instructions below :-


    Messages ----> Menu -----> Settings -----> Creation mode ----> select Restricted.


    NOTE :- IF THIS WON'T WORK, THEN TRY TO SEE THE WARNING WHILE COMPOSING SMS.


    HOPEFULLY IT WILL HELP YOU!!!

    This problem usually happens in Samsung smartphone.For example Samsung Galaxy GT 5570 & few more mobile.
    Whenever text message size reach more than 3 text level it automatically convert into MMS.This problem is facing by many users.But still no solution has been found.
    Go to MMS setting & check there,if unable then go to service centre & tell your problem.They might solve it.

    Dear friend,
    You are not the only one facing this type of problem, many other people also facing this problem because of the lack of awareness about the proper apps to solve these problems. Just use an app named go sms pro for messaging. Using this app will solve the problem. I am quite sure about this.

    Thanks...

    Hey

    Ya this happens on your stock messaging application.

    Follow these steps

    Messages ---->>>Settings ----->>> Creation mode ---->>> select Restricted

    This should do the task.
    Else download go sms pro. This is an alternate messaging application its nice with very good graphical ui.

    Hope this helps
