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:

Find your phone on this list:
Officially Recognized APN Reference

If your phone isn't there maybe these might work:
APN Settings:
Name: Mobile Internet
APN: sp.mb.com
Proxy: Not set
Port: Not set
Username: Not set
Password: Not set
Server: Not set
MMSC: http://aliasredirect.net/proxy/mb/mmsc
MMS proxy: 74.49.0.18
MMS port: 80
MCC: 302
MNC: 220
Authentication type: Not set
APN type: default,mms,agps,supl,fota,hipri,dun
APN protocol: IPv4
APN roaming protocol: IPv4
APN enable/disable: APN enabled
Bearer: Unspecified
MVNO type: GID

@krazzykanuck  Make sure MMS is enabled within your texting application and also make sure yout APN type contains MMS.

Re: Won't send pictures in Messaging

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.

Re: Won't send pictures in Messaging

@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?

Re: Won't send pictures in Messaging

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 can recieve pictures but cannot send pictures in my texts

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.

Re: Won't send pictures in Messaging

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!
