I'm trying to send a text that is '62/2' characters long, when sending shorter texts the text goes through with no problem. However the 62 character text keeps saying it has failed to send.

What do you mean by '62/2'? Is it the 2nd part of a long SMS of about 222 chars long?
Some phones convert long SMS to MMS for which you will be charged. If you're on PAYG & you don't have sufficient credit, the MMS will not be sent.

Yes, tried to forward the text on to a friend to see if it would work.
Definitely more than 62 characters, but on the side of the screen it says 62/2.

@Karen_C: It's not converting it to 2 texts & it's longer than 160 chars. "nn/2" is what you see when you spill over into a 2nd part after going over 160 chars.
@BroganH20: Are you on PAYG? If so, do you have credit of at least 40p? If not, that's why!

@Karen_C: I've already said that twice!

We're going round in circles at the moment. I wrote the text myself. It is not working to any number. Short texts are working to every number. Do you have a solution to this?

I might have if you were to answer my Qs:
Are you on PAYG? If so, do you have credit of at least 40p? If not, that's why!

Ah, OK, then it's not that then.
Look in your messaging app Settings & see if it's preventing MMS being sent.
