Question: How do I stop SMS text message from being converted to MMS?
Here's an interesting one. Starting today there have been times when I've sent a text message to someone, but apparently it was sent as an MMS. This is causing problems with the phone they're using. I haven't changed any settings that I know of and I'm not sending any photos. Is there a setting somewhere that I can change to force the text message as a text and not an MMS?

Might not hurt to give them a call, maybe one of their techs has something to help you out!

It could be carrier-related in same way.
More likely is use of a symbol that is being considered an image instead of a simple character.
Are you using any symbols in your texts? Like the degree circle or the BB logo?
How about in your display name? Many people include the BBM 4-dot logo in their BBM display name, then use same for their text message display name too.
As a test, start a new text message and watch the remaining character count. If it's under 140, then you have a symbol you're using that's the culprit.Saving the world, one OS at a time...

I'm having the MMS indicator coming up with just one person I regularly send text messages to.
They are on the same carrier as me Rogers, and their phone is an iPhone.
I've checked the settings in my text message- advanced - send only as SMS, but no luck.
I've tried deleting and re adding the contact with a +1 prefix, but still sends messages as MMS
