    Has anyone else noticed this?
    If you turn on "Titles" in the SMS setup section.
    Then send a simple text SMS message
    It arrives as a MMS message.
    Presumeably it is also billed as an MMS as well.

    that's because they are mms'. sms cannot have any formatting, its simply plain text at 140 characters. mms are more like email with titles and such. if you turn on titles and leave no title in your message it should send as a sms but i am not entirely sure on that behavior.

    Ok thanks. Worth being aware of though. Otherwise you'd go through the allowence 4x quicker without knowing

    Also - on my last Phone (Sony-Ericson) - you could have titles on SMS messages.
