    Recently got an unbranded unlocked Z3 up and running on AT&T. MMS question, the pics I send from the phone end up getting clipped down pretty small...unless I have the camera on the phone set to 640x480. According to AT&T's info, the MMS message size is 300KB. When I have the camera set to 2 mega pixels or 1.3 MB, the messages are under 300KB.

    Is this just the way it is, or is there a setting I need to change?

    Thanks

    I thought that MMS pictures were set at a certain dimension, I'm not certain what that is though. Something rediculously small I would imagine like 150x150 or something like that, so all phones would be able to display it.

    That would make sense.

    mms is so prevalent now. i think companys are starting to reg them hard. but usually pic size depends on the sending and recieving phone. but yea ive never seen a mms exceed 300kb..it will automatically downsize before it sends and you wont even know..but this is also why some pictures that are detailed take longer to send than others, bc of this compression. thats my guess at least...i do alot of mms'ing between friends throughout the day and ive noticed these things.

    I rarely MMS. Only when I'm at the flea market and I see something I think Mom would like. I'll send her a pic and she can say yes or no.

    I just took a picture of my cluttered desk with my Treo and sent it to myself. It said the picture will be resized. When the mms arrived it was full screen and the properties were 600x480.

    I have read on HowardForums that AT&T is starting crack down on unbranded phone customers, and the MMS is one of the first things to be affected. They are being resized from what I can see.

    I don't see why. They have no idea whether the phone is branded or not. They even gave me lots of support getting 3G setup on my Moto A845, which is a phone that Cingular never sold.

    640x480 works for me as well...but I think anything else gets clipped down to way below 640x480.

    I took the picture at 1280x1024. When I sent it, it said it will be resized and I received it.as 640x480.

    640x480 is the smallest nine get sized down to irrespective of what the original resolution the picture was taken at.

    I get wacked to 400x300. Not sure if it is a phone or setup issue. Not a big deal, not going to loose any sleep over it.
