How To Stop Text Messages From Splitting In T-Mobile?

T-Mobile Text Message Splitting

Text messages splitting up is a common issue and it sometimes happens because of issues like character limitation. For example, if T-Mobile supports only 160 maximum characters and the message you are supposed to receive is longer than the limit, then it will be broken into more than one message.

The thing that is even more confusing is, these split up messages will not be numbered according to their series and it will be very hard to relate where the message links to the previous part. However, you can make guesses by putting up characters together to make a word, but this is not always the solution.

Moreover, there is a rule that the text message with characters more than 918 will be converted into an MMS message.
