Not receiving pics or able to send pics to smartphones.

Why  can't I receive pics from a smartphone or send pics to a smartphone?  My old phone was a smartphone and I did not have any problems receiving or sending pics on it - I have my same number and plan so why is it not working on the iphone?

I have the same problem.

I could send and receive picture messages and video messages with my dumb phone. For iPhone 4S, I have to turn on Cellular Data or in WiFi region to send any picture and video message.

Hi there Snks4449!

Sharing your lives most precious moments via picture messaging is really fun and I don't want you to miss out! You are absolutely correct that your current smartphone should also be able to send and receive picture messages.

When you try to send a picture message, what happens exactly? Is your data turned on? Are you in Wifi?

Please advise so we can fix this together!

Thanks,
