Disable accents in Spanish

There should be an option to disable de use of words with accents in Spanish. Not all phones can manage accents, so by having the proper suggestion for the correct word in Spanish, but without an accent, would be awesome! I have found that some phones can't handle accents, so when I text to those phones they just get symbols and no text at all.

        I second this idea, My problem is not as much that some phones cannot receive accents, though now that is a concern, my issue is that when using accents instead of 160 characters it becomes like 50 so any message becomes 2-3 txts and is just annoying for person receiving. When just disabling accents would be amazing!

        This would be awesome to me also. When you use words with accents on sms's, the 140 character limit drops to 70, wich make me constantly send small messages over two sms's or manually substitute the characters with accents... Any help on this front would be greatly appreciated.
