Thanks! I will wait for the update.
How is this the solution? You're not a newbie so I'm calling it out.
You are right and it isn’t a solution yet. Honestly, trying all these various methods takes its toll and I just want to move on.
For the various people who can’t receive my pictures, I will use a 3rd party (Signal, telegram) to do it if it really needs to be sent. I got on fine without mms or sms!
So yes you are right, I just giving up for now. Hopefully the new version of iOS will force the server to update my settings
