FAQs related to text messaging on your device for the HTC U11
Answers to some of your questions about text messaging on your HTC Ocean
What's the difference between text messaging and multimedia messaging?
A text message has a limit of 160 characters. For longer text messages, your HTC Ocean splits the message into multiple messages.
With multimedia messaging you can combine images, video, and audio with text in a single message.
Note: Other devices either split long texts into 160-character messages or convert them into a multimedia message. Multimedia messages require a data connection; text messages don't.
Why does the message say Draft next to it?
Your HTC Ocean saves a message that is composed but not sent as a draft. You can open and edit a draft or send it as is.
How do I send a group message?
While composing a message, enter the recipient names in the To field.

Steps to delete an entire text message thread
- From the home screen, tap the Messenger icon.
- Tap the message thread as needed.
- Tap and hold the message.
- Tap the Delete icon.
- Tap DELETE to confirm.
