How to: SMS to MMS?

    Hi all,
    Im a BB user and I just got an EVO Shift. I like to send horoscopes to my friends, but they don't like it when it comes up as multiple SMS messages; they prefer one message in MMS format. I know it's weird because all I find is people annoyed with just the opposite and want to disable auto SMS to MMS. I want to be able to send it as one message, but mine doesn't do it automatically like other people are complaining about (I guess an update was done that disabled that)

    Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

    Have you looked into using Handcent SMS? I'm not sure it will do what you're asking -- but it has a ton of features and is really customizable. There's another commonly used 3rd party app, ChompSMS. I don't use that one -- but I believe it has a similar set of features... Both can be found in the market.

    Handcent does allow to turn off splitting messages - whether it actually works on the Sprint network is another matter, as the SMS standard is 160 chars/message.

    The option to auto-convert to MMS is when a split exceeds 3 messages.

    There are at least two pending requests in the Handcent forum to control MMS creation with respect to message length. Might want to keep an eye on those if no other solution presents itself.

    I think I found your answer! :)

    On Handcent, when you go to compose, there's a menu option for adding a subject - do that and it immediately converts to an MMS.

    I just sent a one-word MMS that way - works.
