Re: "Send a file" is there a maximum size of file?

I can say what, if any, specific file size is the limit you can tranfer but I've had no problem with 75 MB files yet I couldn't send a 350 MB file.   If there's a limit it may be somewhere between those sizes.


You shouldn't have any trouble with routine photo files.
