    It depends on how the messages are routed through the server system. Text messages don't always take the same path through the network, so there may be a delay in one section that causes the last message to be received first.

    This is a sprint thing too if I'm not mistaken. In my 7 years with the company all of my phones have had a limit on the characters.

    other phones have a limit on characters , but the pre send larger texts but it separates your text so if someone is driving or right on the cusp of two different cell towers i could see getting one half before the other .

    most cellular serivces have a 150 character per text message limit. thats why when you recieve long messages it breaks them into smaller ones.

    Actually, that's normal from every cell phone I've ever owned.

    I have also noticed this with the Pre and so do people that receive my text. I never had this issue with any other cellphone. They were all on a GSM network which leads me to believe it is a limitation of Sprint's CDMA network.

    The one plus of having long text messages broken up into smaller ones is the faster delivery times. Also load times of the texting app is much faster. On my iPhone on Tmobile it took forever for the iPhone's messaging app to open. Also there would be a noticeable difference in delivery times between short text messages compared to long ones.

    Even though text on the Pre are broken up I like the Pre's messaging app much better than the iPhone's and you can't beat a physical keyboard when it comes to sending long or short text messages.

    Its a limitation (150 char max) of all phones with SMS technology. Just be glad it automatically breaks it up for you.
