Fantastic question! I can certainly understand your frustration with receiving unknown messages. Let's get this resolved. What device do you have? If you have device that is unable to receive picture messages, when someone sends you a picture message the message will go to pix place. You will need to log in at the link provided in the text message or MyVerizon http://bit.ly/xB4iTc to retrieve the picture. Hope this helps!
