SMS Frustration!!!

Hi guys,

I know that this subject has been brought up many times in the past and present. To be honest, it's beginning to be frustrating when text messaging that we all who have the Treo 700w/wx have to deal with the 160 alpha limit.

I know that the moderators to this forum it's a pain that this subject has to be mentioned, but someway somehow there has to be a way to increase the the 160 alpha limit on text messaging.

All I ask and maybe others are asking the same question is why there isn't a hack or software to increase the 160 alpha limit? I have searched through this whole Forum and other Treo Forums and found nothing nor links "unless I missed something" to at least try to resolve this issue we all have.

I do apoligize to the moderators for bringing this up, but I know to all of us, this issue is really frustrating.....

if you're using the threaded at you can do more than 160 it just gets truncated on the other end and sends multiple texts...its not advisable as not everyone has unlimited text messaging as an option. Text courtesy is a real important factor when texting verizon customers who dont even get an option for unlim text for outsiders like us.

There's known hack to fo this. The only way to do this is to install the Palm SMS Thread application. However, at the request of Palm, we do not support the development and/or distribution of it.

I'd recommend going over to TreoCentral since I've seen posts of users offering it.

Besides that, no other known ways to increase this limit... or at least that I know of.

If you're sending that long of a text, Y not just send them an email? Then text them to let them know you sent a long message via their email address.

When I was with Verizon before, I never knew about the limitation, since my Razr sent the whole message, but the receiver would get it, but split between 2 messages.
