    the iphone probably does that so that it isn't sending a really big pic, especially if you're on edge. importing iphone pics to my computer gives me 1200x1600 resolution images, translating to 1.92 megapixel files.

    Pics e-mailed from the phone are reduced from 1200 X 1600 for faster sending over edge. I'm not a fan of it either.
