    is there a way to send a gif image through mms. i copied and pasted a gif and is showed it playing in the input field but it failed to send right away. my friends and i send stupid gif and audio images to each other all the time. now that mms is here is there a way to do this.

    I just tried doing this by sending one I found online to myself. It worked for me to an extent. In the text conversation, both GIFs were moving like they supposed to. However, when I tap it, it is enlarged, but is not animated.

    Sending a .gif wasn't working for me either. Then I turned airplane mode on and off and now it works.

    Maybe .gif images are no yet supported? I mean in 3 days it'll be known.

    MMS is officially supported here, and like I said, it started working after I turned Airplane mode on and off.

    MMS works for me, but I haven't tried a .gif yet. If someone posts it'll I'll gladly test it on my iPhone.

    so the panda worked for me but the gif i was trying doesnt. maybe there is a size cap. i didnt thing there would be cause i sent a pretty large video and that went fine.

    the gif i am trying to send is a .png file and it is 24 frames and its 683kb.
