Default [Q] Messaging App

Hey is there a way to modify the default messaging app so it won't break up messages after 160 characters? I don't text folks on CDMA networks so that limitation is dumb and makes my messag es look stupid . I really use the individual themes feature on the default app (prevents me from texts to the wrong person) so I'm open to suggestions of another messaging app (with individual themes too) that I can use to replace it. But if it could be hacked to make the 160 character break up stop I'd prefer doing that first.
Phones
8125 (Paper weight)
TOUCH PRO (Drawer Dust bunny)
NEXUS ONE (kids toy)
GALAXY S II
LG G3

I think you can change a setting to send messages longer than 160 characters as MMS instead of SMS.

What Semantic says. You can find it in the MMS section of settings. Found an interesting setting while I was looking for myself. You'll see it in the screenshot at the bottom...
