    So i decided to test the video mms today and it just doesnt even work. I go through the motion of selecting a video and it just kicks me back to the txt message like it was selected. Pictures are no problem, and work as expected. Any one else have this issue?

    As I recall, AT&T limits MMS videos to 600kb, which isn't very big. They may have changed that limit. That's about the only thing I can think of.

    I figured it out. Its not the limit, Ive sent some pretty good sized videos with my old iPhone4. In anycase, here is the funky: Videos taken with the back camera attach and send fine, its only videos i take with the front facing camera that dont work.

    I could send one that was 20 secs long but not one that was 30 secs, so I am guessing there is a duration limit as well with the back camera.

    Now that i think of it, the iPhone4 videos i sent were always to another iPhone....with iMessage. Oh well, the vids ive take with the front facing were only 7 & 5 seconds, and they both dont even show up in the little box where you usually type your message.

    AT&T Wireless- What are the Supported Multimedia Message (MMS) File Types and Size Limitations?

    pft what, they don't want you using it as a poor man's FaceTime? What a silly requirement.

    I tried 21 &26 seconds yesterday (720-High) and only the 21sec worked. So it's something less than 26 seconds.

    That's correct, no video sharing, mms or email with front facing camera.

    Yeah, I noticed there is no access to settings for still or video when using the FFC. Probably some ******* privacy theory that someone in Redmond though up. Camera is lower red, so shouldn't be any technical limitations. Will need to offload an FFC video, hopefully through Zune, to see if the formatting is any different.

    That is strange, under pictures hub, or do you mean when you choose an attachment in the email? Videos dont show up if i tap the attachment button in an email, but if I go to the pictures hub, i can then share the video and select email.

    Can you only send videos that have been made with the phone. I synced videos from another phone to my lumia and in the send picture or video option all, only my picture folder shows. I can't even see any of my videos from there...
