Sending MMS or Email w/ attachments

[ Edited ]
I can't seem to send larger items like music files, even on email. I get 'message exceeds size limit'. Is there a workaround, or some program that can zip the files so I can send larger files from my Storm to someone else?

Re: Sending MMS or Email w/ attachments

I have notice this too.  I want to email some videos i took using the phone but it won't let me email them.  I'd like to know if there is a way to increase the size limit.

Re: Sending MMS or Email w/ attachments

I'd especially like to be able to send music. There's got to be some program or something?

Re: Sending MMS or Email w/ attachments

Sorry, this isn't really a reply. But this is close to one of the questions I want to ask, and I don't know a better way to start a new question here...


Yesterday & today I tried several times to email some photos I took yesterday. I'm getting "general failrure" to each one. I've tried starting in email and attaching the photos (well under 1MB in size), and I've tried going from the photo and entering the email to send from there. Neither works.  I've been able to send photos in the past. Any idea what's going on?

I've tried sending to different addresses, including my own w/ no luck.
