Re: Receiving picture messages
The MMS settings provided by your network service provider don't all work with each other. Some are compatible with your network some are not, if it's not, you get a msg giving you the URL where you can pick up your pics.
Also the pic taken on a particular format ie. Sony Ericsson w810i sent to a Nokia 1100, wont work because one phone has a large colour screen the other has a B/W small screen, so the Nokia 1100 would not be able to open the file.

Mar 28, 2013 - How to automatically receive MMS picture messages ... If you're like me, then you probably love to text on your Android smartphone, but may ... How come when I send a text message from my LG 4g phone to multiple people ...
Receiving Messages We currently support receiving MMS picture messages with all carriers in ... TextNow number, you can alternatively have your contact send the MMS picture message to your texting address (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This model not the best for doing & receiving pictures or texts. But I sometimes have issue above if someone has sent a message or a picture to me as part of a group message. I seem to have less issues if they send it to just me directly. Next time someone sends you one, text them back & ask them to send you pic/message seperately, not within a group & see if that helps
Just an fyi, sounds like a common issue.. as I have the same issue all of a sudden. So all the mumbo jumbo about its "probably" this or that is wrong. It's the phone. Also I updated the software and firmware... n that just made it worse.
You will need to contact your network (eg o2, orange etc) and ask them to send you the mms setting for your phone. They send this in the form of a text message and then you should either have to save the settings or it will work straight away.
Further directions will be sent with the text if needed. You could even try on your networks website if you can't phone them at the mo.
Good luck and anymore help, just ask :)
its becuase you dont have the required settings from your network providor to send MMS,
all you need to do is go onto there website i.e vodafone and search for the settings page then put your mobile number in the box and press send when you get the settings you save or install them, or if your not technically minded you can give a quick call to your network and they will send them in a text message for you.
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.
Motorola website has a delightful fix for this problem.
