Up until fairly recently users have been asking us where to get an app that allows someone running OS 5 to send more than the CDMA defined 160 characters in an SMS. Beyond160 has been a great app for allowing users to do this but it was not available for OS 5 devices – until now. Beyond160 lets users on Verizon, Sprint, Alltel, US Cellular, Bell, Telus etc. exceed their 160 or 140 character SMS limit. When your SMS field is full, simply hit Menu>Go Beyond160 and you can continue typing as long as you like. This app also lets you send to multiple recipients or groups you’ve created.
[Thanks for the tip Tom!]
