There are about three people asking me via the comments field on cellphone88.com about why every time they write long text message or more than three messages (more than 480 characters), the SMS converted to MMS. This happen not only when typing a new message but also when the user want to forward to another person.
This condition is generally experienced by Samsung Galaxy series owner and of course it will be a little inconvenient and troublesome when the user wants to send long SMS messages to friends or relatives.
To overcome long SMS messages being converted to MMS, you can do several things:
- If possible, shorten the messages or words used on your SMS; make sure it’s bellow 480 characters.
- Send SMS two times or more. Write up to 480 characters > send it, then write the rest > send it.
- I know the two suggestion before are impractical, so you can use the third suggestion. To overcome this situation, you can use third party messaging application such as Go SMS Pro or Handcent SMS to send your message. You can download this apps from Android Market (Google Play) for free (data charge may apply).
That’s the tutorial how to stop SMS converting to MMS by cellphone88.com. Hope it helps, if you have any question; feel free to ask via comment form bellow. Regards 🙂
