    Ok this one has us stumped.

    A friend of mine switched to Cricket. She bought an AT&T GoPhone (works with AT&T per their rep) and it's the ZTE ZMAX 2. Phone seems to be working well except for the texting portion.

    Randomly when she types a message, all the recipient gets is her text message broken into SINGLE letter multiple text messages. For example is she texts me "Good morning", it comes in as:
    G
    O
    O
    D
    M
    O
    R
    N
    I
    N
    G

    We are stumped and Google isn't helping out on this one. Anyone ever see this kind of oddity?? Any thoughts on how to fix?

    Thanks in advance.

    I found some sites saying this happens when the sender's line length/word wrap was set to 1 or maybe 0 in the texting or email program. These were referring to sending from desktop mail apps like Outlook. I don't know how that would relate to this phone.
