    Hi,

    I've found a bug with the desire which is also well documented here, but even the Vodaphone staff don't know of a fix.
    HTC Legend - sms sending as mms - Vodafone eForum

    The link above is an issue with the Legend, but im fairly sure its the same problem with the desire.

    Basically, I got a joke via text from a friend.. I wanted to send this to more friends, so i long-held the middle button on the message and pressed forward.. I added the names of who I wanted to send it to, and it sent. I then realised it had sent them as an MMS message! This will have cost me a fortune.

    I checked I had not gone over the 160 character limit as mentioned in that thread.

    Try it for yourselves, and see if you can work it out.

    Did you forward to 3 or more people, if yes then it auto converts ;)

    Hello!
    I have the same problem, on Galaxy S2 - sms are forwarded as mms (even very short, even to one person).
    Is there a solution within the settings of the device itself, or must I download an additional program? If yes, how to do this exactly?
    Sorry, I'm a newbie to this.

    Thank you in advance for your help.
