What phone do you have?
What plan are you on?
1GB data, $20
Does your plan include data, or just talk & text?
This issue has been going on for many months but a friend only mentioned it to me a couple of months ago.
When I send a longer text message (SMS) to an individual, it divides the msg into many separate messages. Additionally, they do not arrive on the recipients phone in order.
Group messages behave fine, I assume because they are already MMS.
I am using Google Messages.
Of the friends that I msg most often, one has an iphone, the other android. Both on Verizon. It happens with both of them.
I have a Google Voice number than I’ve used to test the issue.
If I send a message to GV from the GM app (via phone or web), it breaks it up.
If I send the msg to GV from the Anywhere web app, it stays together.
I’ve done some online research and have not found a way to force GM to send long msgs as MMS (since the app update that removed the option, replacing it with a “send later” option)
Thank you for any insight!
