    MMS Pictures Low Resolution T-Mobile USA Galaxy Nexus (not rooted)

    On my GSM Galaxy Nexus running on T-Mobile USA, SMS (MMS) pictures sent and received are very low resolution.

    Based on research this is because of an unrecognized MMS user agent.

    Can anyone verify this problem and suggest a method, with stock MMS app or third party MMS app (handcent or chomp perhaps), that will allow higher resolution pictures to be sent via text message?

    This phone is NOT ROOTED.

    I am only interested in solutions that do not involve rooting.

    I do know if I had root I could rip the Nexus S mms.apk and replace mine, but that requires root.

    Thanks in advance

    Sorry, don't have an answer only question--

    How is the GN running on TMO? DL speeds etc--I am in Dayton Ohio

    16gb and no SD Card work OK

    Saw this and one comment lists IPv6 info--not up on that

    I'm having similar issues ... but I'll be a bit more detailed with my scenario;

    I'm on the Verizon Network. If I send any pictures, they are received exactly as they're sent. In some cases/formats (such as texting), before sending it will tell me the file is too large and it has to be resized. Every/All recipients who get the picture get a good, clear, full size copy.

    However, the pictures being sent to me are a mix of full size and miniature ... no, make that 'micro' sized shots. I have noticed it's mostly from iPhone users (on Verizon, AT&T or Sprint) - but it also happens with older phones as well. A girlfriend using the LG Dare can send full size shots that she's taken, but if she forwards a MMS file it's micro sized.


    Anyone have a fix on this?


    Thanks in advance.

    Regarding the question about usage on TMo, its good, I get better reception than with a Galaxy S 3G. Recent speedtest results = 7.91Mbps download, 1.62Mbps upload.

    The biggest problem so far is the text message size issue.

    As for the Verizon user, I would call Verizon since it is a supported device.

    I didn't see anything that looked like a fix. If anyone has a solution for me, please post.

    Have you guys tried using a 3rd party SMS/MMS app like GO SMS Pro or Handcent? Are you guys on the stock messaging app?

    I tried Handcent and Chomp. Neither worked stock, and neither seemed to have the ability to modify your user agent for SMS.
