My limit changed to 70 instead of 160 characters per message.

Some smartphones will switch the character set to unicode when you try to use special characters. By converting the SMS in unicode, it will automatically reduce the max size to 70 instead of 160.

Here are two things you can do:

1) In your message application, go to "Settings" => "General".  There, make sure the encoding option is set to "TEXT"

2) When you are sending your message, make sure encoding is set to "TEXT".
