I have converted from the iPhone to the Droid... mostly because of the crappy service my family and I were getting under AT&T. Unfortunately, this presents a new issue for me... Verizon doesn't allow one to send texts longer than 160 characters to users outside the network. Therefore, I am wondering if it is conceivable for someone to produce an app that will detect when one is sending an SMS with more than 160 characters and automatically split it into multiple texts? It would behave similarly to Blackberry's "Beyond 160" app. Yes, I realize that the "S" in SMS stands for "short." Thank you for not reminding me, would-be-flamers. And yes, I realize that I could always just send an MMS. Again, that's inconvenient. It is much easier to send an SMS. The thing is, 160 was a good number when QWERTY keyboards weren't the new standard... and now that I am so used to sending massively long texts in a very short amount of time with my iPhone, I really miss the option. There are a few problems that I can see someone running into... 1) How does one know whether or not the recipient is a Verizon customer able to receive the EMS? Well, the app, once installed, could either completely ignore this and split the longer texts for EVERYONE... or the app could add an option within each contact to indicate whether or not the contact is a Verizon customer. This would be manually edited, of course. 2) What about the Verizon notification about "Texts with graphics/special characters or longer than 160 characters will only be sent with the first 160 characters?" Would that annoying message still occur with every long text sent? Thank you for your time you beautiful and precious developers. I will love you forever if you manage to make this app and make it work!
