T-Mobile Max attachments?

When I go to send an MMS I can only send 2 pictures per message, but with straight talk I could send like 4 a message, so is there something I should edit in order to gain more max attachments?

Wow I just tried it and you're right it maxes at 2. I never noticed before because most people I text have iMessage. This is pretty strange. I remember when I had AT&T I could attach like 5 pictures. Wonder what's causing this.

Nothing you can edit on the phone itself, its a carrier restriction on their end.

For the two who tried, which T-Mobile services do y'all have?

The restriction comes from the 14.1 carrier update that added support for T-Mobile. There is no way around this restriction unless you jailbreak or don't update your carrier file.

Probably to keep the size of messages sent at a certain level. Just send extra messages. They're unlimited after all. It's not really that inconvenient.

I mean I guess it's more work but just send them separately. AT&T restricts me at 9. I rarely send more than 2+ at the same time anyways.

I only send 2 at a time anyways, because I can't stand getting 4-6 pics at once. I don't know why, but it bugs me.

You have to use a custom carrier bundle that changes this setting.
