Testing posting from the new cell phone. I haven't actually used post by email before so this is all new.

I really like the text input method on the phone, too.

ETA: And it truncated the message, too. Hrm. Iiiinteresting.

Current Mood: amusedamused

Did you bump into the ... 180-byte, I think ... limit on the length of an SMS message, or did LJ perform some mysterious truncation on its own?

Hrm. My phone actually lets me send about 400-ish characters in a message...

Hrm, that might explain the weird thing I got. I got back a 'couldn't deliver message' bounce, and then was surprised to see that some of it had made it. I wonder if the SMS gateway failed to recombine into one message or something... Clearly I need to send a larger message to myself and see what I get.

BTW, I friended you on the suspicion that you were a GrimJim I knew once long ago. Do you remember me, mayhaps? *grin*

Yay! We should chat sometime or somethin'. *grin*

Ah! Is this a behaviour that varies from phone to phone or network to network? I can't even enter a message longer than that, and longer messages sent via an email->SMS gateway just get truncated by the time they get to my phone. Google results do show up as multiple messages, but I assumed Google was chopping them up itself. (BTW, the two times Google-via-SMS has been useful instead of just a toy so far, it has been extremely useful.)

Is this how cameraphone images are sent, or is that a different protocol?

And if either of you want to try sending a really long test message to 3017877983 so I can find out whether long phone-to-phone are handled differently than email-to-phone, I'll let you know what happens (though if it's truncated, that still won't tell us whether it's a network gateway thing or a model-of-phone thing, unless one of you is using Verizon).

Thanks for the clarification.

BTW, the long test message I asked for just arrived, split into two messages. My phone (or perhaps Verizon's network) did not know how to recombine them into a single long message, but the whole thing did show up on my phone.

Forgot to mention: the parts arrived out of order. The last dozen characters showed up in between parts one and two.
