    Is there a setting to make texts show up as 1 long message instead of 2 messages? They show up as 1/2 then 2/2 and are out of order, makes it really difficult to read.

    Thanks

    Who's your carrier? Some can't recombine a text that's more than 160 characters and sent out as multiple texts from the source phone. The phone can certainly receive them recombined into one message. Mine does (and I'm on AT&T). But if the carrier's cell network can't do it, then the phone won't get it that way.

    There is no setting in the phone for it.

    I'm on Telus. I remember my old Bold 9900 being able to do it.

    I'm not sure if there is a setting or not. I see options for Packet Switched, Circuit Switched, Packet Switched Preferred, and Circuit Switched Preferred but I don't know what that means.

    Mine is set to "circuit switched". I don't know what all the options do either. But, I know that on my carrier, some people had to set this for sms to even work.

    I'm sure there's a Wikipedia article somewhere that explains it all.

    OK, I'll have to look that up to see what they mean.
