    I shot a nice HD video only to have it look like it was shot using a mobile phone from 2005. When I clicked play on the video thumbnail to see what I had sent to my friend it was small, pixelated and just plain looked like crap. Original video in camera roll looks great. Videos stay as is when sending via regular iOS Mail though. What's up with the SMS/MMS compression?

    Just a carrier restriction. You can't expect the carrier to want to send a 100MB five minute clip over their network.
