I'm sure it's not 600k anymore w most of the smartphone, regardless it should have been a standard feature to have. You can argue that wp is the first or whatever but I'm saying still, it should have been there, shouldn't be that hard to code it into the os.

600kb is set by the carrier and not the phone. MMS was available on the iPhone 3G. Apple had to work with AT&T to get mms allowed on their network.

I do like WP but I really think it shouldn't take an update to have something like sending a video through text to be implemented, I don't even think we have the option to send it through email either...correct me if I'm wrong.

I think you're right. On the rare occasions where I find myself needing to do this, I upload it to skydrive and send a link.

iPhone is also excluded on size limits on MMS. You can send much larger sized MMS than any other phones.

Based on the Tago ROM's released you are able to send about 3 sec max of VGA not HD video taken by a phones camera via text. But as far as I understand those ROM's were from the Tango SDK dump. Maybe the final release will allow longer video's. I also know Tango is to provide multiple attachments to a text.

People still send video through MMS? Didn't that die when screens stopped being 1.2"?

I think it's ridiculous that in this day and age people don't research a product before they buy it. So many random things people are beefing about that a little digging could have prepared them for, especially when locking oneself into a 2 year contract.

I really don't care that MMS video isn't there...

I don't complain the infrared isn't in phones any more, its because its obsolete. IMO MMS is obsolete. its a restrictive and expensive way of sending stuff, that you can send much more in an email.

MMS was really only made as an alternative when phones couldn't send emails.

Neither do I.

It is not that expensive compared to data usage of email. You pay $0.25 per MMS regardless of the size. If you have unlimited text (still availble), it is all covered.

On the other hand, any video attachment to email will cause significant data usage. A 1MB video file will cause you 1.5 to 2MB data because of the attachment encoding. If you are on a limited data plan (unlimited is no longer available for new customers), it eats up your cap quickly.
