I can understand that statement, no place to store such amount of letters.

Why not ....surat-surat?

repeating is to clarify it's more than one, if you have a number before it's not needed

letters can be "Surat" but also "huruf"

Huruf is usually used for letters of the alphabet I believe

Yes, but it could be an expression if you play scrabble :)

surely "saya tidak mau milyar surat" is correct here but marked wrong. So frustrating so many errors in this app

Milyar is wrong, it's semiliar, not milyar
