    It seems that Cricket has a limitation on the number of characters allowed in a text message. Anything over 150 and the message wont send. Has anyone else noticed this and is there a way to change it.

    Go to MESSAGES>MENU>SETTINGS.When I ran stock 2.1.1 w/CRICKET,my SMS texts over 150 characters automatically converted the SMS to MMS & never had any problem sending or receiving SMS or MMS.I'm currently running CM7 & can't remember if stock 2.1.1 had settings to control this.I never touched the MESSAGING SETTINGS since it always worked for me.

    - Hopefully, fixed USB mounting issues for good (symlink'ed now to /system, data wiping won't kill it anymore)
    - Since autorun.iso was moved to /system, it saved 12 megs of space. Yay.
    - Increased Dalvik heap to 32m
    - Added speed tweaks to build.prop (thanks to Killabyte)
    - Reverting back to DroidSans font (Ubuntu fonts caused [] characters, I found a set that supposedly doesn't have issues. Maybe next version.
    - Revert back to stable-ish version of DT's apps2sd, hopefully clear up some apps2sd issues
    - Themed Huawei's shitty messaging app (thanks to Joenathan for the legwork)
    - Fixed aspects of the Minimal_Green theme port. It's about 95% ported (thanks again to Joe)
    - Added Flash lite 4. Haven't used it extensively, but it seems like it works.

    I can't remember if the stock messaging app in Icarus has an option to split sms messages over 150 characters or not. You might want to try a different messaging app. I used Handcent and tried GoSMS when I was on Icarus. Now that I'm on CM7 (everything works) there is an option in the stock app to split and number the messages. I accidentaly sent one of my best friends 9 messages (I forgot to lock the screen before I put it in my pocket) that the first 8 were blank.

    It happens when I use handcent or the stock messageing feature. Any text over 150 will not send. I am also getting messages from cricket on some texts i send. I will get a reply that "cricket is not participating in this event" what in the world does that mean.?
