When using an official 4.7... i don't have any problems whatsoever on two different Tour phones, on Alltel.
Once I've upgraded to and 5.0 OS, or hybrid 5.0 OS, ALL my MMS pics that I receive are saved as small thumbnails.
Has anyone experienced this, or knows how to fix this? As soon as I downgrade back to 4.7, problem gone.
I've done complete removals of the DM, and device software, deleted anything associated with RIM from the computer. Did a complete wipe of the phone with BBSAK. Then I reinstalled the DM software, then 188.8.131.529 (used to be .230), then rebooted the computer (rebooted computer after uninstall too). Loaded the OS onto the phone. No dice. MMS pics still saved as small icons.
Here are two screens of a pic I sent myself, just for testing purposes. Images sent from other phones are the same way. The first pic is what it looks like when you open it after being saved to the phone. The second pic is what it looks like when I opened the MMS.
when I try so send an MMS I can chose the size of the picture: original, large, medium and small...this menu then asks, if this setting should be applied automatically on all following pics...maybe that's the issue here, set to small for all pics?
Tried that too. I have it set to ask each time. I always send at least 1024 x 768 or larger. If I send the pic to myself, and my wife, her phone receives the pic just fine (HTC Pro), and I receive the small pic like you see above. So it is sending the pic out as the proper size.
It is really strange, MMSed a picture to my BB by creating a new MMS and inserting a picture, 600 k , a warning came, that it was too large and it was not sent (empty MMS) - shrunk it to ~ 150k, it was sent out well, but what I received was a 40 k picture afterwards...
The size has nothing to do with the BB.. My wife send the original siz pics(the largest) back and forth between her curve and my s2 just fine. It may be the OS causing the issue but its not because of the size of the original pic, it will affect the videos you send though. I would try seeing if there is a receive more, or download attachment option in there some where... or even try highlighing and then clicking the trackball on it.
