One text received over 2/3 texts

Over the past few days I have received a message from my sister (who is in Antigua using an iPhone 4). The texts I receive are split into 2/3 texts. Is this normal or if not what can I do to resolve the hassle of receiving text messages this way?

Re: One text received over 2/3 texts

Hello !


BlackBerry allows for 160 Alpha Numerals to be fed in for any one particular SMS.


If that is a Long message then yes, you will be recieving text in the same format, but will automatically add up into one single SMS for viewing.


Hope this resolves your Problem!


If your problem has been resolved then would request you to Click on "Like" and accept as solution so that other Advisors doesnt invest there time on this Message anymore.
