    Does anyone know if there is a setting that allow you to see the character count when typing text messages so you don't go over the standard 160 count and end up with split messages? All previous phones automatically kept a running count on the top of the screen.

    There is a patch for that

    Yes, this is yet another basic that Palm left out. It must be rocket science if it's taking almost a year and counting to implement.

    Either that or the Pre already automatically continues your message past the word count to a second/third/fourth message....

    I see how the counter might be helpfull if you are trying to send only a single message, but I actually like that it doesn't cut me off after 150 or 160 characters like other phones I have used in the past. I hardly see it as a glaring fault in WebOS.

    The Pre does automatically split it into messages after the 160 is reached, but it would be nice to know, sometimes I send a text and it show only one or two words in the second text, if you know you are that close, you could edit to shortem before sending.

    Where is the patch, my phone just did a software update a few days ago and did not change that problem? Thanks

    As stated above, there is a patch for a character count. But without it, you will be aware when a second message would be sent, because stock webos does tell you you are on part 2, 3, etc.

    WebOS will indicate a number next to the paper plane send icon when you go over the 160 character limit. Although it would be nice if the character count was actually a default feature.

    Try counting the letters as you type? Only kidding.

    Thanks for the info. At least I can watch for the number, I never notice it before, it is not real obvious. But now I can go back and edit if I want to keep it from flowing into two messages.

    I am not sure why they left if off the Pre, I had the Treo 650 and 700 and they both had the feature.
