    VZ Moto Q 9M Enable EMS

    I am really frustrated that this phone doesn't accept messages longer than 160 characters through text. And when you do - you and the send get a message!

    So I found this thread that someone said they 'fixed' this but a reg edit. I can't get it to work - anyone know if I am doing it wrong or have tried this?

    I've edited my registry on my PC but never a phone so I wasn't sure if this just didn't work or I did it incorrectly.

    It depends on VZW. They only allow messages over 160 from and to VZW. Other providers the CARRIER won't allow.

    This is only partial true. With my Razr (and my all my friends on family's phones w/ VZ) you can send longer than 160 characters between VZ and other carriers. This is the first phone that won't unless it's a pictures.

    No. I had the En-V until 2 days ago. Every time it went over 160 and I sent the message VZW replied saying the VZW does not send messages over 160 characters to non-VZW phones. It may have before with your RAZR but the carier is not allowing it now. Borrow a buddy's phone and see.

    My brother has the env w/ VZ and sends me texts all the time over 160 characters as does his wife and to each other. Again, this is only w/ the Q and PDA phones sending EMS messages and they way they are sent w/ VZ but not just VZ itself.

    Right....he can send it to OTHER VZW subscriber's no problem. My Q sends over 160 to other VZW subscribers fine. But only VZW.

    Kanyonacad and you're on Verizon? Did you test it by having someone else send you a message? I only ask because I can send myself text longer that 160 and so can other carriers but other Verizon phones cannot.

    Thanks!

    Enhanced ems

    Hey, Sorry about that, I was too quick on the draw on that one....I was able to send over the 160 limit but was not able to receive.....and, yes, that was to another VW customer. I dont think you'll be able to send over 160 to anyone other than VW though, even w/the Treo's, I was not able to send/receive over the 160 limit outside VW :frown:

    Has anyone gotten this to work with other people sending messages over 160? Because I can send them to myself, but other people's still dont make it.

    Actually he only says that he sent himself a message. That's always worked, even before the reg edit. I was wondering if he got it working with other people sending him a message over 160.
