    3 words into my text msg the small text box gets even smaller with it counting down my letters from like 140 down... Why?? Texts don't get sent as two anymore like they did before.

    Receiving long msgs come as one big one. So I ask, why is there? Serve a function? Or just to annoy me kinda lol

    Yes they do get sent as two. And in some parts of the world, texts are charged. The counter is to avoid getting charged for two texts unnecessarily.

    I'm on a T-Mobile USA unlimited texting plan and my texts are broken up as individual texts if too long. Both when received or sent to anyone else. On BlackBerry, Android and IOS.

    It actually only works when the second row is "unlocked"


    What's the point of the text counter?-img_20150226_215416.png

    I just realized that you have to keep typing to the end of the line to get it, not "shift + enter"

    I believe they don't get sent as two but you get charged as two

    There's people that don't have unlimited texting so it's a good way of knowing how many you're being charged.

    Yes, I have a friend who pays for text and I've used it before to avoid sending a second message with 4 characters or some silliness like that
