Re: Can't receive pictures texts when I'm talking on the phone

You need to turn on Advanced Calling, also known as HD Voice, also known as VoLTE.

To do this, on your phone go to Settings /Cellular/ Cellular Data Options

On the next screen, Enable LTE - set this to Voice & Data

You need this on to have simultaneous voice and data, which is required for MMS messages and to surf while in a call.
