    Hi guys, me again,
    two weeks ago i bought a Lumia 625,
    since i have this phone i cant receive text messages that contain more than 160 characters. I can send text messages containing more than 160 characters and they immediately arrive but if someone sends me a text message containing more than 160 characters i get them 2 or 3 days later.
    can someone help me please??

    Network issue.. multi-page messages are in fact sent as individual messages which are put back together on the receipient's handset (if it supports it), and appears as 1 long message.

    The first S in SMS is for "short" - the limit being 160 characters.
    If they're taking a few days to arrive you need to speak to your network. But some things to help isolate the issue might help - get someone definitely on the same network as you to send a message (so you avoid the "it's the other network's fault") and put your SIM in another handset to rule that out (or in) as an issue.

    That sounds bizarre, but seems you've narrowed it down to a handset issue. I'd do a hard reset of the device and then re-test. Bear in mind the hard reset will wipe certain data etc.
