    This works? I thought it only sent out mass SMS's (and even that was spotty when I used it.)

    So CDMA phones don't have SIM cards? Each number is directly linked to the phone? How odd!

    Sorry for that dumb question but I am one of these ignorant GSM-only Europeans

    You got it. CDMA is more restrictive than GSM. There are tradeoffs, of course, as with most things in life.

    Not a dumb question if you didn't already know the answer...

    It's not that odd. I've had cellphones nearly 20 years now, and have never used a SIM card. So when I hear of SIMs, my first thought is always of that Maxis franchise.

    What would that be?

    Well, CDMA coverage is better here in the US, at least around my area. Data plans are cheaper on Sprint (CDMA) than any of the other carriers. Data is faster too. GSM phones are easily stolen and useable by someone else, whereas CDMA phones must be activated to your account in order to be used.

    I'm sure there are more, but I'm still on my first cup of coffee...

    The CDMA SMS library doesn't support segmented messages. So nothing short of rewriting Palm/Handspring's SMS Library could enable it.

    A developer could write a SMS program that took in a unlimited text amount and just break it up. but there's no standard.
