Size Limit for Photos via MMS

by O. Bliss
(Elkhart, IN)

I have discovered that there is a maximum size limit of photos for MMS. It seems to be a little above 30kb. At exactly the right instant, I caught a beautiful picture of the sun rising through silhouetted trees. I wanted to transfer it to my computer because the composition was so much better that the same taken with a regular camera a minute or so later. The scene has a lot of fine detail which increases jpg size. I guess I'll have to be content with it as wallpaper on the phone.

If it was a picture of an accident scene or something of similar importance, you may be out of luck! This non-feature should be made very clear.

Did you try EMS?

Thanks for your comments.

Did you also try sending via EMS? It is apparently like an SMS text message, but you can also insert a picture. I would leave the text part blank.

I haven't had that happen to me for sending a single picture, though I've certainly reached the size limit when sending multiple pictures. I can appreciate your frustration because both Bluetooth and the USB port are not enabled for file transfer on the phone so there's no way to get the photo directly.
