Before I had a smartphone, i was able to text more than 160 characters in one message by selecting picture message. Even without attaching a picture I was able to type up to 1000 characters in one message. Does anyone know if there is a way to do this on the Eris? I sometimes need to send long messages to people with regular cell phones. but they either get broken up into many small messages (which are hard to read) or sometimes they only get the first 160 characters and the rest is lost. If anyone has figured this out please share. Thank you.
