I cannot send or receive group text messages and picture messages / MMS.  The settings on Messages are already set to receive group texts but it does not help. What should I do?

Thanks.  No I have not been able to send or receive group text messages or picture messages since December 2013 when I got my Lumia 928.  Yes there is an error saying I cannot send message.  I thought before my settings iN Verizon does not allow me to, but now I found out that I have unlimited texts and picture messages.

Can't send message. Try again --- that is the error I get when I send group texts.

Same error message when I send pictures.

I cannot see any attachment either when someone sends a picture to me.

What is happening??

Wow, 1yerdua. That's far too long to be having this messaging trouble. We want to find the resolution fast! If you turn off your Lumia's WiFi (Menu > Settings > WiFi), are you still able to access data-oriented applications like Internet Explorer? Have you been to other areas of the state/country and experienced the same trouble?

1yerdua, thank you so much for those wonderful details. Is your device up to date with the current software on the phone? You can always check that by going into Settings, Select Phone Update, Tap check for updates. Are you connected to wi-fi when you are trying to send a group message or when you try to send/receive any picture messages? Please keep me posted.
