With my iPhone 4S running 5.1, I'll tap out a message that reads on the character counter as less than 160 characters. When I press send, I hear the "sent message" swoosh sound happen twice, as it does when the phone splits a long message into multiple parts.

 

The recipient confirms that the message does get split into two parts even though its contents did not exceed 160 characters. Through some experimenting, I have determined that it happens with messages that exceed 120 characters. In cases of messages with lengths 120-160 characters, it cuts the last word off and sends it as a separate message. 

 

Why is this happening?

 

 

(In addition, checking my Google Voice history also confirms that the messages get split up even though they do not exceed the character limit.)
