SMS is not email.  If they have a regular email account they can access thru the phone, they can receive regular email without the 140 character limit.

Why not write logic to break up your message into at-most 140 character chunks, and send each chunk as its own message? I know that when I've sent texts that were really long, they have been split up on into multiple messages on the recipients phone. However, I do not know if it was my phone or the service doing the splitting. You may have a slight risk in the chunks arriving out or order or not at all.

Why not store the message on the server and use the 140 characters to send a link to the URL?  I'd probably not be interested in SMS that exceeded 140 characters. After all, the name means "short."

this answer comes the closest to meeting my requirement (if the messages arrive in order)

thanks
