We recently were on vacation someone suggested that we try *228 option 2. We tried it and shortly there after it started accepting pictures. Not sure what that had to do with it  but it worked!!!! Hope that helps you!!!

I am having the exact same issue!  I had been receiving pictures via text just fine . . .then all of a sudden one day it stopped.  I also sent a test text with a picture attached and the intended recipient did not receive it.  I have tried all the steps you have tried with no success.  I'm hoping someone will have some suggested help!  Thank you!
