I'm new to the windows phone and i have taken some pictures and tried to send to various people and it kicks back and says "can't send message-try again" i have made sure i have the area code saved on all my contacts but still can't figure out why i can't send a picture.....any ideas?
To send pictures, you have to have MMS enabled on your phone contract. My guess is that you perhaps only selected SMS? To be honest, I would have assumed SMS/MMS was bundled together...but Big Red's got to make a buck.
Also, ensure that you are getting a data connection. If you only see bars and a 1x, then you're not going to be able to send photos via text message. You can only send them if you have bars and a 3G. Activating Wifi doesn't help because Verizon (unlike T-mobile) doesn't offer VOIP services.
Honestly...if it weren't for the fact that Verizon is our corporate provider, I wouldn't even use them for mobile service. I like how they use the community channels to just let us all vent at each other. It's brilliant - this way, they don't even have to provide customer support...we do their job for them.
