Cant send pic messages

Call your cellular service provider and make sure that MMS service has been activated on your account. If it has, request Tech Support assistance. They'll walk you through getting your MMS service up and running. But, you will need MMS to be activated on your account before you can send picture messages.

Can't send or receive PIC messages...

try rebooting your phone 2 to 3 times daily and deleting text and phone calls regularly. this may help your situation. rebooting is taking off battery waiting at least 15 seconds reinstalling battery and powering on... best bet is to delete items then reboot... your problem should go away. unless of course your messages are too large to be sent than that's a totally different issue
