[Q] Cannot Text Past 160 Characters
Problem: The stock 2.3.5 messaging app stops me at 160 characters because that's when it is suppose to automatically split the text, but it stops me and will not allow me to type anymore. I cleared the messaging app data and it still does the same thing. I have to send 2 separate text messages, which I may ad is very very very annoying.
1. I'm on full stock Nexus S 4G 2.3.5. I'm not rooted.
2. I am using Google Voice and I have updated to the latest version, and I have set it to use my messaging app. I am using the stock 2.3.5 messaging app because that's the one I like.
3. I have isolated the problem to the 2.3.5 stock messaging app. I unported my number from Google Voice, and uninstalled it, and still the messaging app will stop my at 144 characters.
Help me? Is this a known issue? I haven't tried restoring to defaults, doing an RTN reset, or going back to 2.3.4 yet, but I will if that'll fix it. I do not want to use third party application either. I like the stock app and I find this very stupid that this is the only phone that I have encountered this on. I remember this working before, but for some reason I can't anymore. I think I was still on 2.3.4 before though.
