    I don't think you could override this capability on your phone, as it is either pre-programmed into the phone or dependant on your network provider.

    All Phones use multiple SMS's to send long text messages.. Each sms contains a part of the full message...

    I think I may have misunderstood the question. I thought the OP wanted to send more than 160 chars in only one SMS. Sorry for the confusion

    No confusion, Hannes. That's exactly what the OP wanted.

    My Internet SMS Service limits the length to about 170 characters
    Without restriction in size, an SMS could be the King James Bible transmitted for only 13 cents - wow - that's value for money !
    Therein lies your restriction - How long a message should an SMS be ? How much should be charged - Per word ? Per Character ?
    SMS has never been for transmitting BOOKS or long messages
    Why not send out a VOICE Recording ? That'll set a new standard, don't you think ?
    Better still, send out a link to a Voice recording - that way you can tie up the receiver for hours at their expense.

    I say - use SMS for what it was designed for - more than 1 screen of text is already too much

    With modern phones why send an SMS at all ? - why not send an EMAIL ?

    Now that would be revolutionary new idea!

    Hi Friends!
    Sorry for late reply, I want to send sms through vb6. I use following Component
    1) msComm = its only use for max. 160 Character sms.
    2) Nokia SDK 3.0 = Mobile Connect, Call Sent Successfully but when I sent sms its shows mobile not connected.

    If u send me Source Code, I highly oblige

    Thanking you,

    Yours Truly,

    Muhammad Junaid

    I'd contact the MFG (Nokia) Directly. Or, if they have assisted support, maybe they'll write an app that will break all of the rules of SMS!
