How to receive picture texts

Since being with public mobile, I have not been able to receive pics by texts even though my plan included international text with picture messaging. Does cellular data need to be turned on for it? I have tried everything and still can not receive pictures by text, it is an endless "message downloading" but nothing happens. Thanks!

Yes. Cell data needs to be on regardless of paid data in your services.

Can you browse the internet?

If not then find your phone on this list:

If your phone isn't there maybe these might work:
