Can't send GIF as MMS from iPhone


I recently upgraded from an iPhone 6s+ to iPhone XR purchased directly from Apple. (my service is through Telus, obvs Smiley Wink )


For some strange reason, I can't seem to send a GIF as a MMS message. Had no issue with this on the 6s+.


The following all work:

-sending GIF via iMessage to another iPhone user.

-sending a photo via MMS to an Android user.

-sending a video via MMS to an Android user


However, if I pick a GIF, either one that I choose in the iPhone's #images search, or via Giphy that's integrated with the keyboard I use, and try to send it to an Android user (I've tried both with my wife, also a Telus subscriber, as well as to my sis-in-law, who uses Rogers), the message always comes up with "Not Delivered".


Any ideas?

There is a similar discussion on the Koodo Forum. Seems like it may be a software issue. From Telus' position, data is data.
