Re: Unable to Receive Picture Messages

My wife is having the same problem with her 4s.  When I send a MMS from my Galaxy Nexus, she does not receive it and when she sends photos, they get hung during the send process.  Both phones are two days old. 


Any help is appreciated.




Re: Unable to Receive Picture Messages

I experienced an issue today while trying to send a pic from my mother's iPhone 4 to my own. It sent fine through iMessage but the first time I tried sending the pic by starting the message directly from the pic in the camera roll it sent from her phone but was never received on mine. That is when I went into a previous messaging thread she had to me and then sent the picture through that (hope all of that makes sense lol). It was received immediately then. No idea why that happened and I haven't had that issue before (to the best of my knowledge).
