Limited sms writing (only 68 caracters)


I have a new Xperia arc and I can only write short sms messages in one sms. As soon as I exceed the 68 caracters the phone tells me it goes to 2 sms and there for I pay for two sms at my phone company.

Does anyone know how I can change the limit to about 180 as it is supposed to have?

I have Scandinavian keyboard with Icelandic language.

Thank you,

an SMS its 160 characters, sometimes networks/carrier/phone companies reduce this amount to 120, etc.
