    Default Sending a video in a text message

    I just tried to send a video I took with the S3 via mms message. Wouldn't let me. Said file size was too big. It was a 5 second video. I have a hard time believing we can't send a video via text msg. A friend sent me a video form his new iphone and it was over a minute long.
    Am I doing something wrong here? I'm using go sms, buy also tried using stock messenger.

    Open the camera app---Under settings---Recording mode---select Limit for MMS.

    The quality isn't as good but at least you can send it.

    My advice: Get GO SMS Pro (it's free). Settings>Advanced>MMS Settings>Maximum MMS size. You can choose up to 5MB limit, which should be enough for most of us.

    Take the video, put it in dropbox (or any cloud), and send the link to your friends.
