Every single U.S. carrier does transcoding on the MMSC level. Sending a larger quality file is not going to impact the picture that you receive on the other handset after the MMSC transcodes it past a certain point.

Glad you found it useful!

And to the one who asked how to do it in Sense, I have no idea, as HTC's messaging app differs from the stock one.

I have noticed that people on AT&T can only receive mms at 500k or less (I'm sending pics from Tmobile).

T-Mobile i think went up to 1MB max size but AT&T uses 600KB. Most other carriers are only 300KB (maybe 350KB) still however however.

I generally lower the resolution of my photos too for exactly that reason. No point in sending "5mp" images for people to view on a ".3 - .8mp" screen. I figured 2-3mp is good enough to save to email later on or view on the PC as well as send via MMS.

Since installing whatsapp, stopped using sms and mms, other than replying incomings, no worries on mms size limitations anymore...
