    MMS (pics) not sending/receiving

    Hey all, I have tried searching but couldnt find anything.

    I have attempted to send/receive pictures from Iphone and blackberry. Sometimes the photo will send/receive but sometimes it wont. I have tried playing around with settings but nothing worked. Sometimes I will receive the pic Hours after they have sent it.

    I am using Go SMS and I have also tried the stock messaging app.

    Any thoughts?

    I have had similar problems. Not sure why. I have to be in data mode, not wifi to receive any pics/texts and sometimes it is hours or even a day after it was sent to me. Try not using wifi and see if that helps. Sorry i couldn't be more helpful, but i wanted you to at least get some kind of reply to your request. Good luck.

    Wow... thats stupid and doesnt make any sense. Thanks for the info, at least now I understand why Im not getting the pictures. Its just weird cause I sometimes get the pictures coming in at like 3-4 am while I am sleeping. The phone is still in the wifi area. Although I do have "turn wifi off during sleep". Maybe thats why.

    Anyways, its really stupid and annoying, I hope JB fixes this nonsense.

    I was having a similar issue. I would have to turn WiFi off before I could get an image from either text message or email. I don't know what the hell I did but now its working while on WiFi with WiFi turned on.

    ya its weird, I was having a problem with email as well but figured out that I had my message siz limited in the email settings. Changed that to allow all including attachments and now I am receiving email and attachments fine.

    As for MMS sometimes i get them sometimes i dont. Doesnt make sense to me...lol..

    Vinnierap, what do you have your message limit set to? Maybe that is holding you back some? I am including two pics, one set high and one set as default.
    Might be worth a check.

    I had it set to the normal/ factory setting. It was Text message limit 200, MMS limit 20. Also I did not have "delete old messages" checked.

    I changed everything to 5000 as I see you hav on the the right picture. Do I have to check mark "delete old messages" or does it matter?

    Thanks

    This all varies by Carrier... Some allow MMS and text across WiFi while others do not... You can be connected to WiFi and still receive them as long as mobile data is also turned on... As far as intermittently receiving them that also can be a Carrier issue... A few years ago I had a Boost Mobile phone I used just for work and VERY VERY SELDOM did I get texts right when they were sent to me... Sometimes it would be hours later and others it may be the next day....
