Has anybody elese noticed that received PXT image resolution is way smaller than it used to be?  I havent changed anything on my phone and neither have people I pxt but for some reason pictures are now tiny.  We all have our Nokia phones set to send pictures at "Large" size.  Sending pxt last week, the picture sizes were the same as they have been ever since I remember.  Something seems to have changed - has Vodafone done something to analyse the image files sent via pxt access point and automatically shrinking them?

Do you have an N95?

Yes I do have an N95.  My friend has a Nokia 8500.  Last week we were able to exchange PXT at a decent size but now they are tiny.  If we send a PXT from ourselves to ourselves it is also recieved way smaller than what was sent.  This happens on both our phones N95 and 8500.
Seems like Vodafone has changed something.  The shrunken pictures are so small they are virtually useless!

Seems to vary from handset to handset: I sent pxt to a Nokia 6121 & 6680, they both received full size, but to a N95, very small.

So those of us that have noticed this problem havent changed anything but the problem started happening about a week ago ...
My N95 is not running Vodafone-branded firmware.  I am running the latest release of Nokia standard firmware.  I wonder if this problem occurs with Vodafone branded N95 too?
I am using the standard access point i have always used which is VF NZ Pxt (live.vodafone.com).
If I send a pxt to myself the original size of the message is 30kb but the received size has shrunk to just 3kB.

I'm guessing Vodafone's long awaited new MMSC may be in place. Maybe a configuration issue somewhere?

I just spoke to Vodafone customer services (midday on 26 Feb).  They are already aware of problems with Pxt (said it is a global problem) and they are working on resolving it with no known time for it to be fixed.
I was told that I am in a better situation than a lot of other people that cannot even send any pxt at all!  
The advice was to try again at the end of the day.

This is not global issue and I can confirm this should not be happening

I have a ticket open about the issue

Thanks John

Would be a good idea for the Customer Service Rep not to tell customers that they have a global problem with this if its's not - makes it sounds a whole lot worse than need be!  
It's good to know that it's not meant to be happening.

I have this issue on a Sony Ericsson K850i as well.

Nothing like testing prior to releasing changes to the network.

Just sent myself one on my trusty SE W900i, source image was 1632x1224, phone auto-resized it to 640x480, takes freaking ages to send over 2G (negligable 3G signal in highbury), image received is still 640x480.

I disabled resizing (this phone is brilliant), sent it again, and it was received at the full 1632x1224. Looks like my handset is being ignored by whatever system is downscaling the images. As I maybe send 1 or 2 PXTs a year, (just used my whole quota for this test ;) - it's not terribly beneficial though!
