    iOS 4: Enabling Text Message Character Count

    Post  Bragging Rights on Thu Jul 08, 2010 12:48 pm

    The iPhone has included a text messaging feature all the way back to the original model, but it took up until the release of iOS 4 to add in the ability to see how many characters your messages include. The character count feature is, however, disabled by default.

    Here’s how to enable the Character Count feature for text messages in iOS 4:

    Tap Settings
    Select Messages
    Tap Character Count to turn the feature on

    The Character Count display turns on somewhere between 25 and 30 characters and shows how close you are to hitting the traditional 160 character SMS limit. Going over the limit doesn’t mean your text message won’t be delivered; Instead, it splits your text across multiple messages.

    For users that budget their text messages, this is a great way to make sure you don’t jump up over the 160 character limit and end up with more SMS charges than you anticipated.

    Very Happy
