Yes, data on, wifi off. Texting works.
Texting doesn't need data on. MMS or picture messaging does.
It should have come in automatically but confirm with the following:

@krazzykanuck Make sure MMS is enabled within your texting application and also make sure yout APN type contains MMS.
check the APN settings. i found at first the default SMS app didnt work on my phone. tried Textra then back to the original, then it worked. not sure why but this helped me . best of luck!
I had the correct APN settings based on the search provided but they didn't work. The ones from z10user4Mayor / Maire seemed to do the trick.
I confirmed my settings are correct in the link you supplied . Any other ideas why pictures wont send/receive?
@AbenitPost a screenshoot of your APN.. in previous cases people did a typo etc. It could be as simple as that.. I assume you have data enabled?
Just used this solution and it worked immediately! Thanks!
I have been unable to send a picture with text. I have been able to receive a picture with text, or send a picture with email, but not send a picture with text. This works !
I have my APN set correctly and I have my Data turned on. When I go to send an attached picture with my text it gets stuck on send so far for 10 minutes. I tried turning my phone off and on again and then just asks me to retry sending the text where the same thing happens again. Can someone help me.
I had the same thing and had the APN and everything set the way it was supposed to. In my case, the data capability was just "full". Here's what I did (this was suggested by someone else here)
In General Settings, choose Apps. Go to your mail app (mine is Gmail) and choose Storage. Choose the clear data button, and then ok to clear it. This will set your data being stored by email back to 0.
I found that I could now send and receive pictures by text as well as email. Apparently on my phone, receiving a lot of email pictures and attachments also fills up the data space for texts, so clearing it out helps both apps. (I don't think that's the technical way it works, but that's the way it looks to me).
I find I still have to do this every couple of weeks and it always gets it working again.
I don't know if this will help you, but it won't hurt anything to try it. Good luck!
