I am going to take a guess at this one.
Has your phone got the current MMS and internet settings for your provider.
This could be as simple as setting the APN settings.

If you need further help, please provide phone model and your service provider.

Hi, I had this problem as well and when I called the provider they told me that you need to punch in the phone number with the area code in order for texting to work. It's solved the problem for me, I hope it works for you!

How do I receive pictures through text do I need internet


to receive text pictures, i mean the ones composed using alphabets in black and white screen, no internet is needed. but to receive the pictures in color, like the camera clicked, or phone clicked, you do need internet connection, that would again be a data connection or a wifi connection.

Seems like your phone is functioning correctly.

You have disabled wi-fi so it is asking whether you wish to use Phone Data Connection instead. (Standard Practice when trying to access data services)

What you need to do is un-tick the option in options Use only 2g networks. (3g is the mobile data service) That should then allow you to access Mobile Data. (3g)

Also enable data enabled

Your Samsung Restore needs to connect to allow pictures/video to send to another phone, since picture mail is unlimited because of the plan you have, you should allow your phone to connect to the internet and at the end of the month if you are charged for data call Sprint and explain your situation. They should credit your account any wrong charges and picture mail should be unlimited as your plan allows from then on.
Note:If you really want to nip this in the bud then call Sprint before you send any pictures and politely ask them to make sure you aren't charged.
Hope this helped!

How do I send pictures through SMS text on my blackberry Curve through sprint?


You can't. To send pictures or other media, you must use the MMS (Multimedia Message Service) option. Just use the option menu button in the messaging application and choose Compose MMS. After selecting the recipient, click the menu button again to add things like pictures, videos, etc. to the message. Note that sprint includes the ability to send media in your data plan, but your recipient may get charged for the message. Some carriers, even Sprint, don't include MMS in there unlimited messaging plans but rather expect you to send the picture as SMS which the Blackberry Curve can't do.

Cant receive pictures or send


No, but you will need a working GPRS connection to receive MMS messages. This is the same like you need for internet services. Check if GPRS is available. If you need settings for it, find them here.
