Re: High monthly bills MMS TEXTS

A sms usually converts to mms after 480 characters. An emoji or emoticon is usually around 100 characters for the first one and then around 2 characters for each subsequent one  A space counts as one character 

On android there is a setting in messages that you can tick to warn you when a text converts to mms.
