And after I sent them samples of Pictures and Screenshots here is their response:
"Thank you for your response. We have taken a look a look at the images you sent. We do not really see a difference in the picture taken with the camera but we do indeed see a difference in quality when it comes to the screenshots.

So basically it sounds to me like this will be ignored just like it was on the HTC Evo 4G LTE which I personally opened 5 tickets on. The current workarounds are to use another SMS App, which I am stubbornly refusing to do, or attach a picture to a text then attach a second and delete the first. As long as the second picture is under 2 MB it leaves it completely uncompressed.
