    Did you film it with the phone itself? When you attach it to a MMS message, I would have thought that it should auto convert?

    I would think so to but it;s not... I ended out filming it in 1080p on the phone and it wont allow me to send it in txt msg it says limited space... I couldnt find an option to convert it. Id rather not have to film the same thing twice.....

    Sorry to hear your having issues... I'm sure one of our members with a DNA will be able to offer some advice though. :)

    U have to go into the camera/video settings and lower it to mms settings. The quality will look like garbage but it should still send. If you want a higher resolution try cloudsend from the play store. It works in conjunction with drop box. U can film in a higher quality and send it out as a link. The receiving end will get the link and be able to download and view it. I don't know why Android doesn't compress and re-compress like Apple.

    Ya unfortunately you have to film it at a lower resolution. Mainly this has to do with the phone settings and then also the carrier's MMSC not allowing messages over a certain size. They are working on that though :).
