    For people that have 3gs, how good is the built in compression software on the phone?

    Like a 5 min video on best quality = how much memory?

    I'd like to upload or email videos when i get my iphon4, but I'm probably gonna switch to 200mb plan, which seems like its gonna get eaten up by uploading 1 video -.-"

    i'd suggest doing it over wifi or just upload it to your computer and send it through email.

    Using MMS, YouTube, E-Mail or Mobile Me uploads, AT&T doesn't allow you send any video longer than 30 seconds or 20 mb over its network, you must be on WiFi.

    It's next to impossible to send a video over 3G with ATT. I believe they limit uploads/downloads to 10MB of data.

    I have a premium Verizon Fios Yahoo email account. Where I can upload 25MB to my own email and ATT's 3G refuses to let me upload these types of video files over their network.

    I am sure they will impose the same policy with HD video uploads. They want you to use wifi.
