Dear Republic Wireless Community,
All of my text messages over 160 characters are split up and sometimes sent out of order. What doesn’t make sense to me is that I know someone with the same exact phone (Moto G4) WITHOUT cellular data who doesn’t have this problem. I used to have a Moto G2 with no data plan and I never encountered this problem as well so I think it has something to do with getting a data plan.
One solution that I have thought of is forcing the phone to send a MMS when the text message is over 160 characters. This is what my old phone (Moto G2 with no data plan) did automatically and it never sent spit messages. The stock messaging app doesn’t give an option to change the sending method used,so I downloaded Textra (an alternative messaging app) and changed the setting to send a MMS when a text is over 160 characters. This only resulted in an error when sending the message and now I’m stuck with a phone that sends split up messages!
