MMS coming in as PIX/FLIX?
NickDons
Newbie

I am on a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and I have had continuous problems getting group messaging to work with my friends on iPhones. I understand that group messages send using MMS and I am sure all my settings are correct to receive them properly. Starting today, MMS have been coming in out of order, not at all, but the biggest problem is every once in a while I get a message from "myself" that says, "You've got a PIX or FLIX message! To see it, visit www.vzw.com/newpix-flix-message from an internet accessible computer & follow directions." I called customer support earlier, and nothing was accomplished. Anyone else have this problem or know what is going on?

I regret to learn of the issues that you are having Vobmalay and NickDons! Do you also have the Samsung Galaxy Note 2? What is the software version? Go to settings > about > sw version. Does this just happen with friends who have iPhones? If so, have them store your number with a 1 before the area code and vice versa. Delete the message thread and test out. Additionally, does this happen on 4G/3G or WiFi? Share details so that I can help.

Thank you,
