    Does anyone know if it is possible to send more than 160 characters in a text on the Verizon curve? Almost all of my old phones could send 160+ characters (to other Verizon customers Only) and just break them up into multiple texts.


    Also, I have custom ringtones for different people in my phonebook. Is there any way to turn the custom ringtones off? I really want to change the setting if possible so when I am at work I can choose a more professional sounding standard ringtone, instead of my phone playing a different song each time one of my friends calls.

    Not possible on VZW blackberries. The program above lets you do it. I don't like it but maybe it will work for you.

    You can send texts as mms messages and I believe it will allow more then 160 chars. Other then that you have to use third party software.
