    For me it just says converting to multimedia message and I guess it resizes it and off it goes..

    ya? it first says "picture too large...compressing" or some thing like that...then to "unable to attach-file not supported" ....what gives!? i would expect this phone to send such files from its own software and it says file not "supported." Anyone else taking 8mp shots and unable to send?

    i just tried it on 4g and wifi...no luck

    I thinks because a 8mp pic is like 3mb and there might be size limit to send mms...

    Umm... I've been able to send 8 MP pictures just fine? When i attach the file, it says something like the file size is reduced, and it sends just fine.

    Yes mine is doing the exact same thing. I laughed because it couldn't send a picture I just took! I figured that was a pretty big bug to overlook on Samsungs end. Gonna give handcent a try...

    same problem here. Talked to verizon. Mine works sometimes and not others. You have to call verizon and complain so they can add it to the list of bugs to be corrected via software update. Verizon rep logged my complaint

    With mine it seemed to have something to do with storing the pictures on the sd card. Rebooting the phone made this go away. However it did come back and I had to reboot again a few days later....

    I sent a few pics out today using hancent..... It takes a little bit to send the mms but eventually does go through.

    Tried storing on the phone but it made no difference. Verizon rep informed me that I was only one to complain bout it. No a fan of handcent or any of the other messaging apps

    I had the same issue with the "compressing" notification and then it failed to upload. But, I guess in hindsight, do we really need to send 8mp pictures? I bumped the resolution down a bit and it works just fine.

    It's hit or miss with mine too. I'll take a pick and attach it and it will compress just fine, the next picture I take say it is compressing then come back with file not supported... It's weird.

    It's the standard, that's why.. To keep all phones "compatible" when sending and receiving pictures.. You don't want to send a text to some poor chump who has a flip phone, only to fill up half of his memory with a single photo attachment ;-).

    I just got off the phone with Samsung and I got the typical you are the first complaint about this.
    But the person did tell me if I know of other issues to have them call Samsung so they can get a fix out for it... The number is 888-987-4357. Please flood their phone lines!!!

    There's another thread on this and the op accidentally had mobile data turned off. They turned it on and I think that fixed it, not sure if this is what's causing your issues as well.

    I have the same problem. If I use back camera it works, but photos too large from front camera. I figured problem was too good a camera. I may change my default camera to 6 mp to see if a big difference - photo size savings may be worth it if picture is not noticeably different.

    I was able to modify the photo I took using Photoshop Express (just cropped a VERY small amount and saved as a new pic) and then it took the upload. Not sure what it is about the freaking DEFAULT format that Samsung's own messaging app finds unsupportable, but I will be calling to complain as well. Amateur cr@p.

    Same here, got a message that if was compressing, but then later saw that it failed. And no, we don't need to send 8MP pictures, but I want all my personal pictures to be 8MP. I shouldn't have to take an 8MP picture, then switch to a lower res and take another one just to MMS, then switch back to 8MP for the next picture. It obviously tries to compress automatically, but doesn't seem to be working consistently. Never had a problem with my dX.
