Photos are currently limited to 250K each. If they exceed that size, you'll receive a bounce message letting you know so you can try again with a smaller picture. Note that your phone (or carrier) might have size limits of its own.
Is there a cost for using Blogger Mobile?
Mobile providers' standard rates for sending and receiving text and photo messages apply. Blogger won't charge you for any of its services.

  • To cancel text message replies, text STOP to BLOGGR






  • To unlink your device from Blogger, text UNREGISTER to BLOGGR. You are free to then register with another blog if you wish.
