    Android converts any messages longer than three texts into multimedia messages.

    In standard android there's an option to turn this feature off, unfortunately in TouchWiz (Samsungs variation) there isn't, as far as I'm aware.

    If anyone can correct me on this I'd be grateful as it's something I run into a lot as well.

    I believe there are a few alternate messaging apps on the marketplace, though I've never used any.
    I would imagine they would solve the problem.
