The SMS limit on my Samsung Galaxy S4 is unlimited. I can write as much as I want without having my messages stopped, or cut short. Also, after a certain amount of character, the SMS turns into an MMS, but this will always happen for I have unlimited data on my device. If you do not have enough data on your device. then you will not be able to go past the SMS limit on your device.
