Author Topic: Receiving Tiny Pictures - MMS Maximum Message Size Only 300kb  (Read 6044 times)

I just go a One XE w/ Beats Audio. The default language is Singapore (English). I live in America and I'm with T-Mobile.

Anyway, when I take a picture and send it via text message, everything works fine but when someone sends me a picture through text message, the pictures come in very tiny. Always between 11kb and 12kb. I would probably said half an inch tall. And when I try to view the image, that is it's maximum size. If I pinch and zoom, the picture will just look very low quality.

When I go to "Messages" then hit the menu button and go to "Settings" then go to "Multimedia messages (mms)" then "Maximum message size", the biggest size I can choose is 300k. I'm used to receiving larger images on my Nexus One upwards to about 800k or even 1.3mb but even with it set at 300k on my One XE, I only receive text message pictures of about 11-12kb in size. I have to tell everyone to email me pictures instead. Lol.

Any ideas on how to fix this or what I can do to be able to receive pictures at original size or close to their original size rather than receiving them compressed down to tiny half inch 11k pictures?

Thank you.

What messaging application are you using. I use go sms pro and have no problems receiving large files, there's is settings within the app to change mms settings.

I use the stock messaging app. Whatever messaging app came with the phone. I tried downloading Go SMS Pro and I messed with the MMS settings and had someone send me some pictures but I still receive them very small, about 12kb in size even when setting the MMS size limit in Go SMS Pro to 1, 1.3, 3 or 5mb.

I use Handcent (free) and have no problems receiving large files, there's is settings within the app to change file size as well as resolution.

Do you have the One XE w/ Beats Audio like me? If so, before using Handcent Free, did you have the same problem as I do?

I have a One S on T-Mobile.  I have never used the native SMS/MMS Android app.

Even after rooting my One XE and installing this ROM: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=14191938&postcount=1

it still does the same thing.

I am guessing BC it is an international phone and I'm using it in the United States and not a T-Mobile branded phone is why I am getting MMS limitations set so low. IDK.

That's a valid assumption.  Mobile carrier networks may well indeed limit the size of files transferred with MMS. I have always used T-Mobile which doesn't. Killer rates and a super fast 4g keep me as their customer. (I pay $42.99 per month for unlimited everything because of a couple discounts.)

I am with T-Mobile but the reason I wanted the One XE over the One S was for the bigger processor, better battery, iBeats headphones and look of the phone. If I would've known this was going to be an issue, I would've gotten a Galaxy S II. I have a number of friends text me pictures throughout the day and now I have to inconvenience everyone as well as myself by having them sent to my e-mail.

I wonder if there is a way I can go into the root of the phone, in a file someone, and change a few numbers around or something that would do the trick to allow me to get large HQ pictures again.

Well first, the XE does not have a "bigger processor."  The Qualcomm MSM8260 Snapdragon is exactly the same in each phone. At the time the stats were published for the One S, the chips were testing at a different rate. There were no changes to these chips when 8 months later they went into the XE. Had there been, the chip would have a different series number. How do I know this? One of my students is the project dev manager for the Snapdragon at Qualcomm here in San Diego. This is his baby.

And you have an excellent phone compared to anything Samsung. Have you ever operated a Samsung and an HTC side by side? The Samsung is junk compared to the durability, speed and overall performance of late model HTC phones.

Sorry about your MMS file size problems. I haven't experienced that and have not heard of anyone else either.
