Re: Texting App or program


 

Gene,

           Also, one advantage to Google Hangouts is that you will automatically receive an e-mail message when someone texts you that contains the text itself and to which you can reply directly and it gets shot back to their phone.  The one thing you have to remember, though, is that texts do have a 160-character limit.  If you type more than this it will be split across multiple sequential texts.

           The multiple split text situation is not rare, but it makes things confusing since the texts show up "in reverse order" since the first 160 characters get sent first, followed by however many more text messages are needed, each snagging up to 160 characters each.  These show up in your inbox (whether e-mail or text inbox) with the last segment of the message appearing first, working its way back down to the first 160 characters.
