I don't think this is a carrier limitation. I've had this problem with a couple of different Android handsets across different carriers. Most recently with the ET4G I've found that if I lower video resolution to 720 it usually sends.
It's a little frustrating. Never had any issues sending long clips with the iPhone, and I've had that device with both ATT and VZW.
Thanks for your replies. To be honest thats pretty sh&t really ! How can samsung /android who are meant to be the competitor to iphone / apple have overlooked this ?
I cant send a video clip via email. What a joke. How can technology be going backwards !
I have managed to send a 10 second clip filmed in 720p to my iphone and it came through as 15mb - jesus ! But 10 seconds is not long enough. Want at least 1 minute. Surely thats not too much to ask is it.
Any ideas guys ? Is there an app to compress clips , is this all android phones or just samsung, does the s2 do the same ? Please let me know.
I have tried android sendit but it is really awful and slow.

Dropbox, I found, was almost as easy as emailing the video. Simply take the video, share it dropbox (super easy). Long press the video while IN drop box and select email link, there ya go! Shouldn't be any limit on video size besides dropbox storage...
With the tight YouTube integration that Android has, why not just upload it to YouTube and share it that way? Also if you use google+ you can enable instant upload and your pics and movies will automatically get uploaded to your account (and set as private) so you would have one less step when you want to share.
Gmail has a 25MB attachment limit. with an HD video with a bit-rate around 15Mbps, you will get around 13.3 seconds worth of video before you hit that cap.
On my Droid Incredible I have a weird issue. If I take the video from the MMS app, it auto compresses it and is able to send. If i take it from the camera/video app, and take the same length video, and then try to send that video through MMS, it says it's too big.
I know we are not talking about MMS, but e-mail, I just thought it may be similar.
Regarding mms i also saw that option. To send video by mms you have to click settings then the mms button and i guess it compresses it. Why have the not done this option for gmail ? Also i have found android does not compress the video so cant send anything really. Must say a little dissapointed. Considereing windows phones today but tge handsets are a little dated. Sorry for any mistakes vut android will not not follow the cursor so when i type i cant see the twxt ? Crazy ?
