    Nice to hear CS is finally admitting that the real answers are found here and that they dont have them. Like a breath of fresh air instead of the usual BS they have passed out in the past.

    Here is the info off of Sprint site.

    You can send up to 512KB of total content in each message, in any combination of pictures and audio recordings. File sizes will vary depending on origin, length, and format.

    And here's something important you need to know:

    Many mail type services do not send binary files as binary attachments, they send them MIME encoded, which means that the size of the converted text attachment is very slightly higher than 4/3 of the size of the binary image or sound file you started with. So you don't get 512kb, you get 3/4 of that.
