    Are you trying to send a message with the new emoticons inserted? These take up your available characters. Try using the more basic versions instead.

    Can you screenshot the setting of your messages?

    I haven't had the time to check and see if it's even an option, but do you have a signature setup?

    it's reduced...
    i could reset my phone to factory settings but i do not want to do that because i set it the way i like it

    i had extra keyboard installed... after uninstalling it now i'm able to type 160 chars in text message...

    i wonder why is that even if i was not using Polish keyboard with polish characters... seems like a bug?

    Change reduced to full if you can?

    Also how do you have that chat back up thing? I don't have it!

    I have the same issue on my HTC 8S... I've tried changing, adding and removing keyboards, but nothing seems to work. I'm just using plain latin characters (not š, , ć, or french letters), and it still splits my message after I hit 70 characters. Any ideas? Thanks!

    I have HTC 8s and I had same problem with length of text messages. I tried turn off Use Facebook chat and problem is solved.

    Edit: I am confused, because sometimes I can write 160 characters and sometimes 70.
