Character count

Is there anyway to turn on the character count in SMS? I just learned today that when I go over 140 characters it creates an extra charge. and I can be wordy Smiley Happy

 

I've changed my plan to an unlimited so I don't have to worry about it any more. Just wondering if there is a way to turn it on.

 

Thanks!

Re: Character count

The character count us on all the time — however it only appears once about 20 characters are remaining.

Re: Character count

No problem. I've only seen it a couple of times myself. Almost all my text messages are very brief.
