Are you using the stock SMS or an alternate app? If you're using stock, I might recommend switching to an alternate app to eliminate that as a cause (I highly recommend GoSMSPro
!), or if you're already using an alternate app, try switching back to stock and see if the problem is resolved.
Does your friend have this issue with anyone else or is it just you? Does anyone else you send messages to sometimes receive your texts as MMS?
I will watch next time and see how long the messages are.
I'm use "VZMessages", which I got, IIRC, in the Google Play store. I have a stock app, though, so will try that as well.
, it's just me she has the problem with, but if it continues, I can check with her. I did sometimes get MMS from my sister (who is also on US Cellular) when it was just text.
