Error message trying to register picture message account

My new SPH-m510 receives pics and videos no problem but when I try to register the pic message account so I can send my pics or vids to friends it asks me to enter a password then appears to be loading and gives me an error '256' everytime. Sometimes it doesn't make it to the password entry before the error message appears

    Try and drain your battery if this does not work go to messages-inbox and click 're-send' I hope this solves your problem. Good Luck, Kind regards,Shanice

I want to download pic's from phone to laptop

What kind of phone is it?
IPhone = iTunes
Android + most others = Show up as an external drive when you plug them into your computer. Just browse the folders on that drive, find the one containing you pictures and then copy the pictures to your computer.

I can't send pic/video messages

As of February the LG Rumour will be one of the phones MTS/Sprint's new operating system will not cover for Video/Picture Messaging. Even though it's never worked for me since I got the phone, now they are completely making it impossible for you to use that feature. My question is why are they advertising that feature then?

Check with G1 support at T-Mobile to see if the receivers information is being blocked from your service. They should be able to fix it on their end.
