text message

Can you change the size of the test messge on the Curve? It currently holds 160 characters per text, can we change the amount of characters? Thanks in advance for all your help! =)

Re: text message

No, this is not possible. SMS Messages are limited to 160 characters per message, as part of the standard. Some carriers allow you to type more than 160 characters in the message, but when it is sent the messages are broken down in 160-character message blocks. There is not a way to change this.
