You should be able to send photos to any mobile phone, provided that they are able to receive photos. Are you getting any type of error or alert saying the picture failed to send? You may want to backup and restore your phone as well and see if that fixes it.
I also could not send group messages. I saw a note where someone turned off group messages and they could then send them. I turned it off and now can send group messages and pictures to my daughter.
Let's get your picture messaging up and running wdarmer. When did you start experiencing difficulties with sending picture messages? What make and model phone do you have? Are you getting a certain error message when you try sending a picture message to a non-iPhone?
