Generally the SMS length is set by the carrier.

Wipe the device with Jl_cmdr (see the FAQ for more info) and then reload the OS (see the yellow sticky for the latest version for your specific device and the instructions).

Make sure that you follow the instructions exactly and be patient. It can take an hour or longer.

Deletes all user data and optionally user installed programs. To completely wipe out the device and reload the OS, follow Dubdub's suggestions (post #2).

Two different products that have overlapping functionality.
Use either one and do a "wipe".
