picture message help
hi guys, im new to this forum and android and have a problem sending picture texts. i can send them and receive them to any phone but when trying to send them to an iphone they never get it nor do they get any indication that i have sent it. my phone shows that it went through and i can receive pic messages from the iphone but i cant send them to one? if i send a regular text it goes through fine but for some reason an iphone will not get any picture message from my incredible.
also i have tried sending pictures to two different iphones with no luck
thanks in advance

That really sounds like something on their end. It would be an MMS and they would have to be set up to use mms messages. Some do not have this option which is why people can actually have using with programs like "Handcent" if they check the option to convert to MMS at a certain size. I have a coworker that does not have MMS options enabled so he cannot receive any that are sent to him.
Yeah i got to test this out. My brother has a 16GB iPhone 3GS so i got to see if he receives pic messages from me when he gets back from Vacation.

This much is true. Well depending on if you prefer ease of use or customization.

I had the same problem but to correct it...i would send it or, have to send it by editing the picture first and then it goes through.
After i've done this i haven't had a problem since...
Can anyone tell me why VZW limits the picture size to 1.2Mb on MMS? I mean come on.....what good is having an 8meg camera if you cant send a picture over 1.2Mb. Im pretty sure its because VZW doesnt want to bog down the network but it gets frustrating when I take pictures and when I send them and it's too big, it resizes the picture, and reduces the quality. I have my camera set on 3meg and some pictures I take are under 1.2 and some are over that so now I have it set on 1meg. I know I can email them, upload them via facebook or just mount the sd card to my laptop but its much easier to just send them via MMS.
