    The video that my daughter sends from her iPhone to mine is sometimes big enough that it fills my screen (without clicking on it to make it bigger), but sometimes very small and if I click on it, it will get bigger, however the resolution then is very bad.
    I can't figure out what is causing the difference.
    Thanks.

    if she is sending an MMS its because the network is compressing the video.

    Thanks for your quick reply! :)

    Would that occur sometimes and sometimes not, even when on the same network?

    It should occur every time, ATT/VZW don't want you sending an uncompressed 720p video from your iPhone :)

    When I want to share a video I just upload it to Dropbox and send them the URL, hope this helps.
