    When I send or receive a text message and there are attachments, I find it a bit frustrating that at times if its over one mb I can't get it. Is therean app or workaround that can fix that?

    Text messages are limited to only 160 characters by design (assuming 7-bit encoding). Adding attachments changes the text message to a multimedia message, the length of which is completely determined by a carrier's gateway limitation.

    I know that most of the time, a video cannot exceed 300KB.

    The best solution to this is to send multimedia messages via email, not via MMS.

    Handcent will reduce the size of a photo something the stock app won't do. That is the main reason I'm staying with Handcent.

    The stock messaging application does reduce photo sizes for MMS on my Hero.
