When I send texts to other people with iPhones, if I go over 160 characters, the whole message comes through as one message. It doesn't get split up into separate ones like it does if I send a long text to a blackberry. As far as the new character counter is concerned for iPhones, what is its purpose? Is it only for you to know when you've reached the limit when sending SMS to other phones, like blackberries? Is that a feature of the iPhone, or AT&T maybe?
