Yeah, that's pretty much what I was trying to say, lol. If the song is short, tho, it will obviously finish before the software does - no looping or anything like that.

Yes, that's correct. If you're on a CDMA network, you have a 140 character limit per sms message, and its on your application to either break them up or convert them to mms (which has a several-thousand character limit, btw) - the network will either truncate the message to 140 characters or refuse to send it at all.

Interesting. Is there any reason why it sometimes work and sometimes doesn't?
Can I tell the stock messaging app to turn every multi-page SMS into an MMS?

I'm only theorizing here. A network as big as verizon's is probably a hybrid network at this point since they've acquired many different cellular service providers using many different technologies (CDMA, PCS, maybe even GSM, etc). So it might vary depending on which cell tower you're currently using and what specific band / technology it is utilizing.

That's really just a wild-ass guess, though. Truth is, I don't know.

I think so. I don't use the stock app myself. You can always look at the settings and see. If it's there, then give it a shot.

I personally prefer the split option just because MMS messages take a bit longer and are subject to all that wacky network / wifi wonkiness that sometimes happens. Granted it is a LOT better on AOKP, but I still have the occasional MMS that won't send until I shut wifi off now and then.

Personally, I blame Verizon for insisting that MMS apps can't access their MMS servers over wifi. I understand they do it to make sure ppl who are sending mms messages are properly authenticated, but there are other and better ways of doing that which would be a lot less intrusive .. in my opinion anyway.

Awesome, I really appreciate your effort in answering my question. Another thing that comes up with SMS is delivery reports. I request them from my SMS app, but I never get a response. It stays pending forever, even if the other person is also on Verizon.

Any insight?

Edit: What's the point of the Strip unicode setting. What characters am I sending that aren't unicode?

If you need, use go SMS pro, that's what i use (i'm on Uscellular, so cmda). You can auto convert to mms or auto split. I prefer auto split because there are still those who can't recieve mms messages, so all they see is gibberish letters and symbols.

Yeah, I've noticed that delivery confirmations never work on AOSP roms. No idea why or if it is even possible to fix. Maybe someday ....

About unicode, I think some of those emoji icons are implemented under the sheets as unicode characters, but I'm once again wild-guessing.

I'm going to try calibrating the battery and see if I have any better luck.

An update on this: I did a battery calibration and ran my phone all the way down to dead. After charging it last night I'm still at 89% at 1:45pm with low use, whereas before I would be in the low 70s or high 60s.

Only issue I had was last night when I only had about 5% battery my data was stuck on uploading. I turned on Airplane mode to fix it but the option in my power menu was greyed out so I couldn't turn it off without rebooting.
