Can't send text over 160 characters

Until recently partner could send texts over 160 characters but not any more. Have seen others are having issues but partner has been told it must be a problem with 'phone settings. Could not get any more details when my partner rang as account in my name - tried ringing myself but gave up waiting to get through.

Please add myself and a friend of mine each experiencing this same problem since Friday on Virgin mobile. One old Motorola phone, one much newer Samsung.

Hi Dilbob,

Welcome to the Community Forum, thanks for your post. Sorry that you have been experiencing problems sending text messages over 160 characters. Is this working for you now? 

Please let me know. If it's still ongoing, I'll need to take more details from you so that I can look into the problem further. I'll send you a private message requesting further details. Just check the envelope icon at the top right of this page.

 

Kind regards,
