Occasionally my text messages are being converted into MMS when I send them, for which I then get charged. I’ve looked into this and I think this happens when the SMS ones are too long. How do I know what the limit is for sending SMS messages before they are converted to MMS? Is this specific to each phone or to the provider I am with? My phone (Samsung S6) does not tell me when this limit is reached.

its normally 160 characters and if your sms all of a suddend shows kb instead of a message count, thats normally a good indicator it has now changed to mms, this does vary from phone to phone though, some will flash up and say your message has now converted to mms
