    For some reason, all of my incoming picture messages are being resized to 3kb. It never used to do this; it started when I installed Handcent. But even after uninstalling Handcent, I still receive tiny pictures. It's driving me insane. Anyone know anything about this?

    I always though picture messages were resized automatically for sending? Or are you not tapping on the message to open it up? The image will show up as a thumbnail in the messaging app until you tap to open/play the message.

    They may be resized on someone's end, but they never used to decrease to 3kb. I have some of the pictures saved on my phone from before this started happening and they are all 50-500kb. And I am tapping on the thumbnail. No matter whether I just view them or actually save them, they are extremely tiny.

    Welp, I gave in and did a factory reset, and now everything is working fine and dandy.

    Do you mean issues with the resizing?

    Yeah I realized after about a day or so that the factory reset hadn't actually fixed it. When I called t-mobile they said they'd never heard anyone else complain about it and now they're just sending me a new phone. But I guess that won't fix anything. The lady I talked to did mention that it could be something over the network but when I tried switching my sim card in another t-mobile phone it seemed to just be isolated to the behold.
