iPhone 4s not sending/recieving photos

Ok so I bought my 4s on friday and its absolutly amazing i love it. however it will not send or recieve photos. I was wondering if theres a certain setting i need to turn on for it to work?i am a first time smart phone owner so all of this is a little new to me. I have always had unlimited messaging so this shouldnt be an issue. this is also not the first time ive had difficulties upgrading a device with verizon. there always seems to be one bug that needs to be fixed when upgrading..any ideas? thanks for the help!

Hello Arianna, 

We need to make sure that when you are changing phones it is as seamless as possible to you!  Did you get a chance to try what soupcannon suggested and turn on MMS? The exact steps to check would be Settings>Messages>MMS Messaging>ON.  If this did not work are your getting a specific error message when trying to send or receive messages?  Please feel free to reach out to me if additional support is still needed. 

Thank You,

Re: iPhone 4s not sending/recieving photos

My phone just started to do the same thing. I have tried the steps above, but I still can't send or receive picture messages. I've had my phone for almost a month now. I may have to go into a verizon store and get a new phone.
