I have only one challenge for everyone that reads this post... Send any MMS to any 4 people.
I will guaranty that 9 out of 10 will not be able to receive it. I have found over 14 different popular phones that will not receive the video...including Iphone 4, my touch, Galaxy S, and many others... they will get a black screen and only sound. If they get any video at all, it is too pixalated to even see anything.
I have been working with Tmobile for 2 months now and still have not resolved this issue... I have been threw 7 master resets on 3 different hand sets... yeah that’s right yours is broken too!
Please test it out and call tech support and let them know you want to be added to the many that are not able to send videos...
Tmobile has opened a chat thread between them and Samsung, tell your tear 2 tech agent that you want to be added to the thread.
Not a real fix but try uploading the video to Youtube and send the aforementioned people links to the video. I don't know what type of security locks Youtube has so you might want to check that out first and see if that helps. All the phones you mentioned have Youtube access and this is just a thought to give you a work around until a real solution is offered.
Does anyone know of any free aps out there that I can use to record MMS's and send them without people having to have the data plan to receive them? Youtube can only work if the receiver has data, thank you for trying though. Id rather send it directly to people instead of having to upload to the web.
Just search google play for mms and see what comes up.
I use GO SMS (love the themes) works great. free.
Videos through MMS aren't a good idea period since they're so large.
They wind up having to be compressed so much that they generally come through extremely bad.
Youtube is the best option, in my opinion, as was mentioned above.
Not to mention most people will be able to access Youtube from various sources with a cellphone, through wi-fi, laptop, PC, Playstation 3 or Xbox 360 with High Speed internet access. They can even utilize internet cafe's with free wi-fi if they must. You just have more options with Youtube as opposed to the tiny, compressed 320x240 resolution video and that's being generous. Why not use the full HD 1920x1080p that your Galaxy S II is capable of and upload to Youtube?
