Ive been having a problem with my Iphone 4 recently when i send text massages.
i will type out the message and it will send fine but the reciever will get a jumbled up message that is half of a text i would have sent a couple of days ago and half of the text i tried to send originally.
My phone is up to date with the latest software so i really dont know what it could be?! this is causing problems for me and my boyfriend so i hope someone can help me!!

what mobile carrier are you using? Is your boyfriend with the same mobile carrier, or another?

the on contract versus pay as you go should make no difference at all.

main reason i asked was because your profile said "UK" but you posted the question in a "Telecom New Zealand" forum - you probably should have posted it under "Apple IOS" or "Mobile Handsets" and stated that you are from the UK, not NZ.

Is this only happening with text messages that are longer than 160 characters? (or longer than 80 characters)
Do you know what "IOS" version your iphone 4 is running?

Hey!

Check out my post, I had the some problem, and it is explained why this happens.

SUmmary: It is an SMS sent from an iPhone to a phone that doesnt support 160+ character messages. It is the other phones fault  - not the carrier and not the iphone.

:)
