    It's a technical limitation of the SMS protocol, it has nothing to do with the operating system.

    If you type more then 160 characters it will be sent as more then one page to other feature phones. It will show a small number next to the 160 to count the pages. However, on Android it merges the multiple texts into one text when you view the thread.
