    i just got my HTC hero with sprint yesterday (and might i add that i LOVE it!) anyway, i was texting one of my friends and while i was doing that a small black box with "9/0" came up in the top right hand corner, and i noticed that as i continued to type the numbers would change.. i know it's sort of a pointless question, but i'm really curious as to what it is! does anyone know?

    It may be just a sprint thing.
    Try posting on the sprint forum.
    They may have your answer.

    Thread moved. Could have been done sooner if it had been "reported" to a mod.... ;)

    That's how many characters you have left in that message. SMS text mexxages are limited to 160 characters. The HTC Hero and other newer phones will allow you to type more and automatically splits it up into separate 160-character messages when you send it. I believe the numbers are '# of characters remaining / # of messages filled (over 160 characters)'
