I have the same problem any answers would be helpful
I reset my phone completely and it sent pictures again. But eventually the problem persisted.
Reset a second time and it does not send pictures still. I am calling support to see if i have some sort of block on it.
To send pictures, you have to have MMS enabled on your phone contract. My guess is that you perhaps only selected SMS? To be honest, I would have assumed SMS/MMS was bundled together...but Big Red's got to make a buck.
Also, ensure that you are getting a data connection. If you only see bars and a 1x, then you're not going to be able to send photos via text message. You can only send them if you have bars and a 3G. Activating Wifi doesn't help because Verizon (unlike T-mobile) doesn't offer VOIP services.
Honestly...if it weren't for the fact that Verizon is our corporate provider, I wouldn't even use them for mobile service. I like how they use the community channels to just let us all vent at each other. It's brilliant - this way, they don't even have to provide customer support...we do their job for them.
