cannot send or receive pic messages (lg cosmos)

my husband and i both have lg cosmos phones.  we're on vacation (still in the US) and cannot send or receive picture messages all of a sudden.  we can send and receive TEXT messages, just not picture messages.  the same thing happened to my mom when she was here (she has a samsung).  is it just the area we're in or what?  why can we send texts and not pic messages???

Check your signal and type of coverage... if it's 1X then all you have is text messages; if it says 3G then pics (which actually use a data connection, but count as text messages) are OK.  if it says Extended coverage or Extended network or Roaming, then pics won't go until you reach an area where there is a strong enough DATA signal to send/receive pics.
