Hi briar62,

Thanks for the update. When you are on extended network, you're picking up service on different towers than ours. Do you have access to wi-fi? If so, you can use email to send or receive picture message.

boots2057, We want to get you sending those picture text messages. Have you ever been able to send picture messages? Is this giving you an error message when you try and send pictures? What device do you have?

Can you check your messaging settings online to verify you can send pictures etc. through text message?

There are settings that can be set to disable the ability too send them in your account settings.

Let's get this fixed briar62! Are you able to receive picture messages? Are you receiving an error message when attempting to send a picture? Does your internet work without issues? Please power the phone off, remove/insert the sim here http://vz.to/1pliuEW power on, test and share. Thank you.

I have finally figured out why I cannot send and receive picture text. It is because I am in an extended coverage area. There should still be a way to send and receive picture text even in an extended coverage area. Why is it this way????
