Cannot send and receive text messages
FrankAtCommunit

(1) My 4S cannot send text message using SMS/MMS, have to use iMessage. Without WiFi signal, I cannot even receive incoming text messages, unless I have to turn on Cellular Data all the time.

(2) I cannot send picture message using SMS/MMS, have to use iMessage.

Verizon rep fixed the text message problem.

Here is the 2nd question.

If there is no WiFi available and Cellular Data is OFF, I cannot send picture using SMS/MMS with iPhone 4S. SMS/MMS works for me to send picture message when I use basic phone.

You need the Cellular Data ON to send MMS messages.  SMS messages should be able send and receive with out the cellular data on.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
