Was it a long message? I just switched to AT&T from sprint and let me tell you, my wife sends long messages. They would come through in 7 or 8 parts sometimes and my phone would go crazy on notifications.
friend is Verizon, and the message isn't very long, I've sent longer and they haven't been broken up.
EDIT: ok this is weird... it appears if I have an Emoji in the text message the SMS "limit" is changed to 66, but with no Emoji it is 145 characters.. lol
