    I used to text using a razor and you were unlimited to how many characters you could use when texting. My blackberry curve has a limit. Is there a way to increase the amount of characters per text?

    The blackberry curve from Verizon does not support that. You can send an email, or mms if the other person you are typing to can accept that. Otherwise, just send one message, then continue in another message. Im used to, if i run out of characters quickly send that text, then quickly type another text and send it so the person recieves two messages. I type super fast on my berry so it isn't a problem for me.

    The limit is not imposed by the phone, or the provider, it is a limit inherent in SMS. No provider or phone can exceed 160 characters per SMS text. What some phones will do, however, is split up the message into multiple messages. BB's do not do this.

    What Ashlyn said is your best option. If the other person can't receive e-mails to their phone, you can use as many characters as you'd like in an MMS.

    My bb bold allows me to send 6 texts in one go, each with 160 characters, so bb's can do this, I'm on Vodafone UK
