    2-part messages?

    My phone is completely stock. For some reason I never receive the first part of a two part message. I only ever get the second part, which is really frustrating. On my second Atrix, and the first one had the same problem. Am I missing a setting or is this a carrier error?

    The problem is the SMS app itself. I don't use stock texting, so I'm not fully sure of what is in the menu, but there may well be something that talks about split messages. Turn that off. Better choice, go to the market and download a better SMS program (GoSMS or Handcent are 2 of the better ones) and do the same procedure with the menu.

    I could also be a carrier error depending on your location and proximity to the towers, I guess.

    Some phones can't handle more than 160 characters, so smarter phones will split the messages ... at least that's what I think he's referring to.

    I thought that only CDMA networks split messages?

    Messages may be transported from one network to another, therefore the limits may be imposed somewhere along the way.

    Also, I'm using the standard messaging app and have never had the "1st part missing" problem.
