Its been that way ever since the iPhone started doing MMS period. Its not just the iPhone 4.

The is compressed so it can be sent quicker over a cellular connection.

yes this is bothering me too. It's the same when I upload videos to YouTube or to my facebook. The quality is bad. My friends keep saying my iPhone sucks because it can't take good videos.... But on my phone the videos look perfect!

That's why I always email videos to others when I can. I'm not sure if they get compressed at all but the receiver gets them full size with a very nice quality picture.

I really hate that we can take hd video but can't send hd through mms and sorts. I sent a video to my sister who has a 3GS and she's like WTF are you using a 3G to record I was like say what!?

So it stinks I have to upload to computer then upload to facebook YouTube or w.e :(

Hmm, I never knew this. Wow, that really sucks. It seems like I'm finding more and more flaws in the iPhone as it gets closer to the white release.

Like Vegasflyby suggested, send it my email and see how that turns out. If they can't access emails and attachments on their phone, tell them to pick up an iPhone 4.

Best way to send video I've found is dropbox. In the app there are settings under camera for high definition. Then mark the video as public and send friends the link. I know it's a pain, it's the best we have at this point. Hope some dev sees the value in making it a smoother process. Would fetch a pretty penny in the app store or integrated into a SMS app and put on the Cydia store. Can anyone say iRealSMS 4.0.

Sorry to double dip but it just dawned on me. How much sense does it make HD video and send a MMS if the screen resolution of the recipient's phone can't handle the resolution? Just a thought.

Well, since the thread started out talking about iPhone 4 to iPhone 4 I agree with Vegas, there's no point in not emailing it for better quality. Its just as fast.

I read and have pixelpipe. Unfortunately the one thing gizmodo neglects to tell ya is that each video has to be 200mb or less. Not a very long video when talking about 720p. On the flip side it does work very well and hell it's free!

That'll do me no good since every 2-3 min video I've shot on the iPhone 4 is atleast 250-300mb
