    Not sure that this had anything to do with it but I ran SK Tools and cleaned up some crap on my storage card and tada my text messaging works now. Maybe it was just a Halloween spook.

    I never saw the link to the text shared reg file on page 3. It doesn't ask me if I want to write to registry. It just opens up my PHM registry editor. Am I doing something wrong?

    Yes, I did download the zip file and execute with file manager. Now that I think about it, I have done a Master Reset a couple times and I may not have unlocked the phone again. I'll try to do that when I get home and I'll chime back in.

    Thanks rudeboy!

    rudeboy,

    My phone is unlocked. When I execute the .reg file, it just starts up my PHM Registry Editor. Perhaps it's not meant to be on my phone. I thank you for your help.

    I've tried to add this manually many times and ways, just can't seem to get it to work.

    If I understand this correctly. I open the TextShared folder and create a DWORD called EMSHandlerInstalled with a value of 1. Is that it? Also, do I leave the DWORD IS637MaxAsciiCharacters with the value of 238 in the TextShared directory?

    BTW, I'm using a Q1 with WM5.0

    Thanks,
    Rick

    i have a Q1 w/ 5.0 & this works fine for me off the 1st try. try to turn the phone off & on after you do the hack. thats what i did. also make sure that you have the right letters capitalized in the Dword.
    i also read somewhere that if you change the max characters # to a higher # w/o creating a Dword, you sms should allow that many characters in a msg. i never tried it but it may be worth a shot.
    good luck.
