There's a bug fix for that issue I beleive coming either in Dec or Jan. Seach in the forums for OTA and there's a link to the "leaked" documents.

 

I had the same issue. I actually had to go to Messages-->Compose-->(menu --> Attach) -> Picture.

 

I think I remember hearing something about downgrading your picture resolution to something below 5mp as a workaround. Again, there is a patch coming that hopefully will fix it (assuming smart autosizer).

thanks for the info...i actually did play around with the settings and changed my resolution...but hopefully they have a fix for it because whats the point of havingt he 5.0 mega pixel camera if i cant use the best resolution to send pictures...right? lol

Sending the pictutes via MMS is going to reduce the resolution anyhow. However, we shouldnt have to "take" them at low resolution to be sure we can send them easily later!!!
