FAQs related to text messaging on your Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+

Last Updated: Oct 04, 2016

Answers to some of your questions about text messaging on your Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+

  • What's the difference between text messaging and multimedia messaging?

    A text message has a limit of 160 characters. For longer text messages, your Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ 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.

    Send or receive a text or multimedia message.

  • Why does the message say Draft next to it?

    Your Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ 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?

    In the message inbox, tap the Compose button and enter the recipient names or numbers in the Enter recipients field. If they are in your contacts list, tap the preferred entry from the drop down list. If the particular number is not in your contacts list, separate it from other entries with a semi-colon.

  • Can I delete a text message?

    • Delete a single text message:

      1. From the home screen, tap Messages.
      2. Tap the preferred message thread.
      3. Tap and hold the preferred message.
      4. Tap Delete.
      5. Tap DELETE to confirm.
    • Delete an entire text message thread.
