    I responded to your post on another site. There are serious limitations to the size, length has little to do with it.

    even with unlimited data, att cant remove this restriction. the only work around i could find is to download go sms pro (for free), and under advanced settings click MMS settings and change the maximum mms size to 5M. then go to settings in your camera app and under video change the video size to something smaller than 1920x1080 (will adversely affect video quality but will also decrease the size of the video).

    edit: a 12 second video shot in 1920x1080 is 24.08MB

    if you want iphone quality video than just change the video settings to something worse than 1920x1080. the file size of a 5/8 megapixel camera is def going to be smaller than a 1080p full hd video shot w 13 megapixels.

    edit:i also wouldnt want to text a huge video file to someone with a limited data plan.

    ok, so I went into video setting and chose the smallest size available. I did a 37 second video and it was still too big to send through text. what else can I do?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, isn't there a "limit for mms" option while selecting video size?
