    When i am trying to send an sms wich is longer than 3 x 160 symbols it sends it as mms, not as sms. How to swich off this annoying "feature"?
    That's not feature, that's bug!

    It's not a bug, that is how sms works.

    Its a limitation of the app. Not really a bug but how the app was designed. You can use a different messaging app like Go SMS Pro. It allows me to send a 5part message as SMS still.

    OP, SMS stands for Short Message System (short being why you're running into this issue). As others posted, it's a function of the way SMS works, vs what you're phone is doing "wrong". If you find Go SMS to still be inadequate with its limits, you might be better served looking into an IM service as a solution.

    You could also look around at some of the chat apps that would use data via 3g/4g/wifi instead of your carriers network. You wouldn't have a size limit there unless you have a data limit..
