Is there any way to disable the Lumia from switching to MMS when sending a "long txt"?
83 MMS have appeared on my bill & it has been explained to me these are "long txt".
My N900 never occurred these MMS charges!
VF advisor was also unsure as to which length the conversion began - 3/5/7/10 SMS long?

I had a bit of a rant at a Vodafone person because she said there was no way to stop this.
What you can actually do is go into the settings and turn off "Group Text" which clumps longers texts into MMS.
After that they send as long texts.

It also converts SMS to MMS when sending a text to several people at a time, something which I have never encountered before. The woman at Vodafone did remove (most of) the charges from my account after having to explain it to her an extraordinary amount of times, and her genius solution was "send all of your texts seperately in future". Clearly this is a fairly obvious solution to the problem, but absolutely ridiculous that I should have to do this when the facility to send them all in one go is there, and works perfectly fine on all other phones without incurring charges.
