SMS (SHORT Message Service) messaging, by design, has a limit of 160 characters (including spaces), whether on CDMA or GSM. Some phones handle longer messages by splitting them up, while others convert a long message into an MMS (Multimedia Message Service). There are also phones that just won't do a message over 160.
If you have the Unlimited Messaging or Unlimited Family Messaging package, this should not present a problem. If you are on a limited text plan and pay as you go MMS, the long messages will cost you $0.25 each. Also remember, if you send to multiple recipients, that counts as multiple messages.
