Text message

Why can't I send long text messages easily? Once I get passed an unknown (to me at least) number of characters it won't send, I had to cut and paste to a notepad to manually split the message into smaller pieces.

Is there s setting to allow longer messages, or I'd it a limit of the Virgin/EE network, so use a different service, eg WhatsApp..?

Re: Text message

What is happening is your phone, instead of splitting it into two messages, is converting it to MMS

Stopping that is a function of your messaging app

All text messages are 160 characters. Have been since SMS started
