    I have an iPhone 4. When I text someone on AT&T if the message is over 160 characters, it breaks the message up. My understanding is that CDMA networks are hard limited to 160 characters, where GSM networks are not. T-Mobile and AT&T are GSM. My friend on AT&T can send texts longer than 160 characters from their Android Phone (Nexus 5) to me and they are not broken up. So I'm wondering is this a software limitation and I just need to use a different SMS app on my iPhone (which one), a setting I can change in my SMS app, or is this a limitation that the T-Mobile network is placing on all outgoing SMS messages of its customers?

    That's just how it works when sending to androids/windows phones/blackberry/etc. I believe they can only receive 160 at a time. When androids text iPhones the message should break up as well or it'll try it's best to keep the messages in order when they come to you.
