Are there some additional options available for the Camera Capture API's? Eg, can I specify that resolution should be, at most, 640x480? I have an app which sends a photo, but when the photo starts exceeding 2MB, the upload files on the server with STATUS CODE 3 (partially uploaded file).
Other devices don't cause an issue with the same script, and the PHP server has a 20MB POST side and FILEUPLOAD size. Only thing I can think of is that the BlackBerry is limiting the file sizes.
Also... can I programatically inject back keys? So that the camera comes back? It mentions keyboard emulation in the API reference, but has no sample code to actually do it, nor does it actually happen, even with these permissions allowed on the device.

The Camera API works by launching a view to the native camera application. The photo taken is dependant on the resolution settings provided by the user at that time. There are no additional options that you can provide to the InvokeCamera API to change these user settings. Once the picture is taken, the file path to the photo is returned to your application.
If you wish to pre-process the image before uploading them, it may allow you to reduce file sizes and potential timeouts.
Do you happen to know which network gateway your BlackBerry is using to transfer the file? Is it regular WiFi, or are you connected over cell through your corporate network (BlackBerry Enterprise Server)? If the latter, there may be an admin setting that restricts max file sizes.
