    When someone sends me a video through SMS from their iphone or Android the video quality is reduced very poorly. I have to request them to send it to my iphone or Email it to me. Why does Blackberry reduce the quality of the Videos through SMS?

    When I Email a video from my iphone to my Blackberry I can't send the video. It has an error saying "Video Transcode Failed".

    Is this going to be fixed in the upcoming 10.3 or is there a setting to change? This is really annoying!

    All phones reduce the quality to reduce data charges. You're better off using a cloud service like Dropbox

    Yeah, but the quality of text messaging a video from a Blackberry to another Blackberry is garbage. You can send a message from an iphone to another iphone without much quality lose. I hope this gets fixed in the new operating system.

    It might be because an iphone sends through iMessage instead of sms... I haven't tried from an Android to an iPhone

    It's because of the MMS standard, it has nothing to do with the operating system.

    Try sending through BBM which works like iMessage. You'll see they're comparable quality
