    Are you trying to send images or videos?

    If not...try installing GO SMS from the market. It's free and works a lot better than the stock app.

    Maybe that will work for you!

    The character limit for a text message is 160 characters, this is probably the limit you're running into.

    The aftermarket messaging apps have ways around this. I used to use Handcent, which automatically splits messages if they exceeded the 160 character limit, and it also has a character counter. I recently switched to ChompSMS, as it was mentioned that it will automatically convert a message from SMS to MMS if it exceeds the 160 character limit, which means no splitting.
