DAVENEW84, we want to ensure that your pictures are exactly where you want them to be. Can you tell us the make/model of your phone? What application do you use for texting? Please describe exactly where you see these pictures.

Thank you for responding.

My phone is a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

Texting app is Messages

Pictures show up occasionally from someone in a group text.

If you need further info, let me know.

Thanks

I appreciate the information, DAVNEW84. Let's gather some additional information and see what we can find. Just to clarify, you mentioned that pictures from your gallery are showing up in texts from other people. Are you saying that one of your pictures is in the body of their message? Or does one of your pictures randomly show up as a text message from someone else? Do you notice any pattern with this at all? For example, is it coming from the same number(s) or numbers from a different carrier? Please elaborate so we know which direction to take.

Thanks so much,

It has only happened about 4 times, from June until last week.

Different pics from my Gallery show up in the body of a message and

once just as a text. All from different numbers. All Verizon carriers.

This is really odd, DAVNEW84. Just to make sure I’m on the same page, does the person you’re in the message thread with see that picture in their message history as well? What is the person attempting to send when you end up seeing a picture from your gallery instead?

The people that are sending text do not see the pictures that show up

on my messages (phone). They are just sending word texts.

DAVNEW84,

Thanks for those additional details, so let's keep going. As these pictures are not consistent (only 4 over the last 2 months), are they the same picture being sent? If looking at the text message thread where this photo was sent, does it say "MMS" with a time next to it? If possible, see if the recipient of these phantom photos can compare their side of the text messages to yours.

I appreciate that clarification DAVNEW84. I think we're getting close to figuring this out. Are you using our Messages+ app for your texts or a different texting app like Hangouts or What's App? Also since this is only occurring in group messages, is your phone using random pictures from your gallery or are they related to anyone in the group somehow? Lastly, are the pics from your gallery coming from the main Camera shots or from older folders like Screenshots, Facebook photos, Messaging photos or something similar?

I use Messages, not Messages+. The photos have no relation to the people. All photos come from main camera.

It is different photos that appear and it does say MMS with the time.

I am the recipient. Photos appear when someone text me. Senders do not see them, even when I reply.
