support text messages. It may not be possible to send an SMS text message
to someone’s phone who has an account with a different service provider.
However you may be able to send a text message as e-mail to someone
who has an account with a different service provider. For more information
on e-mail SMS messaging, please see “Send and receive e-mail messages”
on page 92.
Message length: The maximum length of a received text message is 160
Network variations: The maximum length of a text message depends on
the capabilities of the network from which the message originated. Also,
text message format may occasionally be different, as messages can originate
in networks other than your own.
Note: You can send mobile messages if you have subscribed to the
mobile messaging service offered by your service provider and the
