    Default Help sending quality videos via texting?

    Aghhh.. Loosing HD quality on larger videos w/ sending

    <-- New iphone user (5s)

    My wife and I take and share lots of videos of our daughter back and forth via texting. We have noticed that with longer ( larger file size ) videos the quality goes to ****.
    Is there anyway around this?
    We both have imessage set up ( Not exactly sure what the purpose of imessage is anyways...?).

    I have read we might be limited to the file size depending on our carrier.

    I have Sprint, she has Verizon. Both of us have a 5s.

    I've read there are apps. that can eliminate this?
    If yes, does that mean we both need to have this app?

    *** I've read of something called dropbox? You upload the large file / HD quality video to Dropbox. Then via Dropbox send a link to the other person. And they can click the link to watch or download the video form the link? If yes the can dowload the video from the link does it still have the HD quality?

    I'd like to think it would, but I really haven't paid any attention to it. I upload quite a few videos to Dropbox and other cloud services and send links to view them, and they all look the way they do on my device.

    AirDrop works great for videos. It's easy and fast. I AirDropped a 4 minute video to my Wife's phone. It took 1 second. The quality looked the same as what I sent.

    Sent from my ancient but trustworthy iPhone 5
