    Somebody told me that when you take a picture on your phone the picture quality comes out better when you email the person the pic rather than text them it. Does anyone know anything about this at all?

    Absolutely true. Images sent via MMS are lower quality to cut down on data.

    Email is always a higher quality ... They aren't as compressed and it's VERY noticeable when sending video

    +3. MMS will compress the image to make a smaller file size to send over the network. If you attach it to an email, it will give you the option to compress, or to leave it as it's original size. I'm not into the tech specs per se, but I believe there is a file size limitation on the MMS standard.

    So when do you notice the picture quality the most when you send them as a mms vs email? When you print it out?

    MMS has never worked for me on my iPhone 4S so I always email. I have been doing it so much that I actually prefer the email method anyway. If you're sending it to an iPhone user chances are they have that email account setup on their iPhone anyway so it's basically the same AND they get a better pic.

    That or if you try to view it on a large screen it will look pixelated and blurry if you stretch it out on the screen. If you just view it on your iPhone you likely will not notice that it has been compressed.
