Verizon Pioneers MMS Uploading…NOT!!!


Verizon may be able to call themselves the most reliable voice and data network in the country, but they’re certainly not the first to allow users to upload videos to YouTube via MMS. The fact that they’re releasing a press release touting such a feat is pretty ridiculous and embarrassing.

Verizon, pay close attention to what I’m about to say. Helio was the first provider in the US to give users the ability to upload videos directly to YouTube via MMS more than a month ago. HelioUP is the coolest feature I’ve seen on any service provider hands down. You can upload pictures to Flickr and videos to YouTube within a matter of minutes. Pull your head out, Verizon. Get your facts straight before you go running your mouth.
