Are you trying to send/receive picture messages over wi-fi?  If so, turn your cellular data on ... picture messages will not send/receive over wi-fi, they require a cellular connection.

Reset to factory.  No more error but picture message just sits there with green arrow like its trying to send. then fails.

I had this same issue.  I downloaded APN Settings Shortcut from the play store and it worked for a day then it stopped again.  The solution is easier than that... download the Verizon Messages app... bingo - NO more issues...
