Motorola V3 Razr Sending/Receiving pics in text messages

My husbands' Razr will not send or receive pictures in text messages. It will send a plain text message. My Razr does okay, so the problem is not with AT&T. AT&T could not help us.

    Razr v3. I can send foto sms out, but cannot receive from them from some other people. When the foto sms arrives to my phone, when trying to open to view, it always says "Unable to download, try again later". I first assune the pic my friend tried sending was of too higher resolution since their phones are newer. I asked them to take a pic on low setting, but no hope.

ATT should have looked to see if the internet service is turned off for that particular phone. If thats the case, you shall not send receive pictures. Thats the only the reason you should not be able to send receive pictures.

Call ATT again and ask them that. Sorry to say you might have got the high school dropout rehab person that day.

AT&T (formerly Cingular) will not support international (i.e., purchased on EBay) Razr V3s sending text msgs with photos. Give up and go get a real one, or switch your carrier.

I can text , and recieve texts , but cannot send pic texts or forward pic texts ?? but can recieve them

Make sure you are following all the steps, because picture message looks the same as text but has one extra menu for adding the image itself. Watch the steps at under Electronics->Cellphones category click on Motorola RAZR video. Chapter 14, called "Send pictures to your friends"

After receiving a picture text from someone on my Motorola RAZR V3 Cell, I had only received a message saying that somebody had sent me a picture and it was from: 8211, but my current plan does not al

I think what has happened is that someone sent you a pic and because you have not got it opperating on your service the provider has automatically generated a message telling you there was an attempt.
If you check with your provider I would guess that 8211 is an automatic provider code.
nothing to worry about and no need to respond

Can't send/receive picture messages on Motorola Razr V3

Go to Motorolas website and select exact model of phone follow the directions and they will send you update for the phone. I did not realize that I needed to do this I bought my phone through internet and did not understand why could not send pics as my provider said that I shoud be able to. Now I can hope this works. Good luck
