    No, there is not. The limit is 160.

    You'll have to send an Email, Blackberry Messenger, multiple texts or compose an MMS without the picture.


    Keyword is short

    Compose your message as an MMS if you need longer than 160 characters, as MMS supports up to 1000. The receiving person will be charged accordingly however.

    Answer: no

    You need to send either MMS (if you have it) or email the message.

    Hope this helps

    This 160 character limit is carrier based. Some carriers allow longer messages. I am with T-Mobile UK and can write a message up to 960 characters long which it splits into messages of 160 characters each and then rejoins them at the recipients end.

    Just use bb messanger. If your friends don't have a bb, this is the perfect time to pull them into the addiction.
