    Does anyone know...

    In threaded sms...when writing a text message..How do I tab down to the next line? The tab key sends the message and it's driving bonkers..:crazy:

    Thanks for your help

    That's because sms is based on characters so the only way around it I guess would be the spacebar. Keep in mind most carriers will limit the number of characters to 140 or 160.

    Does that help?

    Yup, if i remember correctly... had to go back to .148 (4.0 os) so I can't test it....but I believe anything, whether its a space, or shift+enter to the next line all count as a character

    Thanks again for this info guys. Now I'm driving my wife crazy. I'm sending her BBMs but I'm spacing out the words so she has to scroll a long ways down to read the whole message. lol

    This is too much fun! Yes, bored at work and I'm easily entertained.
