    Samsung Captivate. Looking for some help on transfering a Video I took with my new phone. For some reason the file looks large 99989 KB and it is to large to transfer to a e-mail the system is telling me. Tryed e-mail, messaging.

    I don't know of any messaging system that will allow you to send a 98MB file. You're probably going to have to transfer it to a PC and send it over FTP.

    Your phone will only allow about a 4MB video to be sent, and to send it via MMS it has to be a low resolution video.

    If all you're looking to do is transfer the video off the phone, your options are:

    - USB (set to "mass storage")
    - Bluetooth (will take a long time)
    - MicroSD card (if you have one and an SD adapter so you can then read it in a card reader in another computer)
