    How large of a file can a picture, video, or audio be when being sent as a MMS??

    is there a way to send an audio file(song on ipod app) through MMS?

    EDIT: In Settings.app>General>Network>Cellular Data Network> Scroll down to MMS Max Message Size... mine says "614400". But 614400 what? KB?

    I can edit the file number... if I edit it to a larger number, does this mean I can send better quality stuff then???

    I don't think there is a limit to the size of a picture or video

    and the only audio file that can be sent is a voice memo

    On the 3GS or in the IPCC files, I saw a setting somewhere that said the upper bound was set to 1 MB but with the AT&T 5.1/5.2 IPCC files loaded, saw it set lower to 600K in the Cellular Network menu in the phone's Settings. Since that menu is now gone in 5.5, I don't know what it's actually set to right now. But considering the state of AT&T's data network, can't imagine it's over 1 MB right now.

    I'd metaphorically "bet my next month's paycheck" the unit is bytes. 614400 bytes would be 600K exactly.

    I'm not sure you could just increase that number because I bet there are checks on the carrier side for limits. Still, if you want to give it a whirl and see what happens...

    Take a video and sent it to yourself. It will ask you to trim it to size. Trim, send, save then look at what size it is.

    I don't have a Cellular Data Network selection in Network.

    When playing around with it before, AT&T seems to have a server size cap so, don't think so.

    It was present when using the 5.1/5.2 IPCC file for AT&T but has gone away using the official 5.5 IPCC file.
