    My wife just tried to send me an MMS video she took of our son from her iPhone 4S. I could not view the video only listen to the Audio...

    Anyone have any idea why this is happening?

    Pretty sure this is coming in the Tango update. Can I ask why send a video over MMS instead of uploading straight to facebook/youtube/skydrive then sharing the link? Seems better in the long run, it gets backed up, you can share the link around easier, etc. And I assume MMS video compresses the video or reduces the quality somehow.

    Yea for some reason I couldn't open a .mov file that was sent to me via email from my wife's iPhone 4s either.

    I'm thinking the codec support is not there yet.

    My wife has sent videos to my trophy from her iPhone and I've watched them with no problem. Sems like the Lumia would be able to play them too.

    Ah then we can receive MMS but not send it ourselves till Tango. Maybe it's just a signal issue? I know I've tried to send regular pictures to people and it would error out twice, but then go through the third time. Did she use some kind of app to send the pic or just the regular messaging program? Could be a nonstandard codec as mentioned above.

    I haven't tried this yet, but that would really suck not to be able to receive mms from other devices... =(
