Hi, I can't send SMS longer than around 2100 characters with my jolla 1. The messages displayed are "Impossible d'envoyer le SMS à ...' and 'Problème d'envoi du message', which means something like 'Imposible to send the SMS to...' and 'Problem sending the message'. Sending larger SMS with the same SIM in my BQ HD5 Ubuntu Edition works fine. My jolla is a little more three years old. I never faced this problem before. I've found a 3504 characters long SMS the jolla managed to send last September. I don't remember which Sailfish OS version it was running at the time.

Just out of curiosity, how long it takes to type that SMS?

All hats off to people who write novels with SMS!

Indeed, I don't enjoy typing that kind of SMS on the jolla, When I got a laptop on hand, I type the text on it, then send it via email to my jolla, then copy/paste it in a SMS. These SMS are dedicated to a trainee who doesn't check her mailbox frequently...

@elvisplatini - maybe is it better to use the app "Send to Phone" :)

go to sertings - apps - messages and modify the max message size.

i do not think it is a os issue. maybe your provider did change.the max.size

the size setting in the messages app is for the MMS, no? As a matter of a fact, MMS is the solution I found to send these long SMS. I send a picture, and the text.

As I wrote, when I put my jolla's SIM into my BQ phone, I can send longer SMS, so it doesn't seem my provider is setting a size limit around 2100 characters.
