Generally if the phone is giving a "cannot send" or "message failed" error message then there is something wrong with the "switch" In order to fix this you need to contact your providers tech support and they should be able to fix the issue...
You can also try sending the picture to your own number... sometimes that will help push it through the switch...
Also make sure that you are using the area code of the numbers that you are sending it to...
Alltel for example, will not let the message go through if the area code is not inserted

Samsung Galaxy S 4G: Not able to send or receive text messages (airplane mode not enabled)
Hello. It's possible that your cellular service has not enabled your ability to send and receive text messages on their end..
Call your service provider on a different phone to let them know that you are not able to send or receive text messages in all the areas you've tried. Indicate how far away from each location that you are unable to get signal from. If you can not send or receive text messages anywhere at all, this should also be addressed. They may even walk you through resetting your APN settings
In some cases, it could just be the building that you are located in that is blocking cellular service.
Sometimes, it could be a fault of the service provider. They may need to reset your connection on their side. If not, at least you can get them to try..
It sounds like it is not the fault of your phone, but has to do with the Cellular Service Provider.
Although I don't believe my user dictionary was flushed, my phone also keeps notifying me, "message not sent" when i didn't send a message. When I press the notification, im taken to a blank text message. No name or number in the To: slot and no message in the message section. Its driving me nuts(Not to say I wasn't already there to begin with) Any suggestions would be great.
if you are unable to send text messages(sms) to anyone then there is a problem with the message centre no. refer your manual to fine the message centre no in your phone(probably in text message settings) and check if its compatible with the service provider.( call the customer care of service provider to get the message centre no) and enter it and save it. then you will able to send text messages.
All you have to do is go to your message setting on your phone:
1. Open Messaging
2. On New message sellect options at bottom
3. Open settings
4. Open Text message, you should see: Message centre, message centre in use ect..
5. Open message centres this should go to next screen then open again, this screen should have : Message centre name & Message centre number (from your network provider you need to find out what is the message centres name & number are e.g in Australia it should be SMSC1 and number is +61411990001) then just manually enter these in there.
