    Whenever I text using over 160 characters, to a non-Verizon customer, it just cuts it off. How do I get it to make it is multiple 160 character messages?

    use handcent ... it automatically splits your text in to individual 160 character texts

    How?
    I still get the VZW 160+ error in handcent.

    There's an option to split long messages in handcent, it was off by default for me.

    MMS text isn't unlimited--I believe its capacity is 1000 characters for 7-bit

    I am starting to like handcent better than the HTC messaging client.

    I've just started using handcent too, and I like all the options it gives. Does it seem a bit jittery to anyone else though? It seems like there's lag in bringing up my inbox and again when sending a message. I never noticed these issues with the default messaging.

    It's less laggy than the HTC messaging app.
