Sprint's MMS Compression

This is a message directed at sprint.

I have owned devices on your network since the original EVO.

EVERY SINGLE ANDROID PHONE since then that i have owned has had ridiculously overkilled MMS Compression.
(EVO 4G, EVO Shift 4G, EVO Design 4G, EVO 4G LTE,  and HTC One)

Please stop doing this, there is no reason to shrink it all the way down to 19kb. It has been like this since the OG EVO and its time for change.

I would not mind if it was compressed between 100-200kb which would be much more reasonable in regards to the state of the network today.

Also i do not understand you you are kicking yourselves in the @$$ by not allowing MMS to be sent over WiFi. This is a great alternative to overkilling the compression to save on network bandwidth.

I know i can download a 3rd party app like handcent or chomp to get around this, but i would rather not.

Please update our phones to fix this.
