Some picture messages sent from Nokia phones will have this error as the samsung does not recognise the characters.

My lg envy touch wont recieve or send a picture message, it says its connecting for a little bit and then says message deliverary failed, and it says this after each time resending or trying to recieve it....

you have to ask your carrier to open your gprs/mms. some cellphones automatically opens the mms thats why most users doesn't know that we have to make a request to our carriers to open our mms so that we would be able to receive picture messages.

When recievin photo message will not display and states unsupported content

as your phone only has a standard VGA camera, it is possible that the pictures your being sent are too large for your phone to display. Can you send MMS? (picture messages) Try taking a photo on your phone and then send it to your own mobile number. This will test that your phone is ok and the problem is related to the actual message your being sent, i.e. file too large. ( in UK max file size is 200kb I believe)
If thats all ok ask the person who is sending you photos to maybe take a photo using less mega pixel setting on their phone, lets say 640x480 resolution (VGA like your phone) and see if you can receive that from them? I have come accross this before on some lower spec Samsungs. Hope that helps?

Phone recieving unsupported image files.

So you're right it is really a common problem with this phone. Well actually it's with this phone on an ATT network when you're receiving a pic message from someone on a different network, such as verison. As far as I know there is no way to "fix" this but there are a few ways to work around it.

If you're sent a file that you really want to see you can either email the file from your phone to your email and then download it to your computer or send it from your phone to your computer using bluetooth if your computer has it. (be sure to remember that often you have to highlight the file you want then change it's options to be bluetooth recognized so that your computer can see it)

Then change the file extension to .jpg and VIOLA!

Here is another work around gleened from the ATT forums that I found worked as well- Hope these help!
""So here is the fix - it worked for me. My phone (and yours) has a email style address. The format is : ( Have your friends that use other networks create an additional contact in their phones for you using this identity. They will be able to craft a text as usual, attach multi media or photos and send to that address. Your phone should be able to translate/diplay the media. It worked for me. If you dont know the address of your phone I'd be willing to bet that someone at ATT customer care can find it for you.""

because your system does not support that picture type. images have so many types. check which type of picture is. and if you cant open that pic u can open it into another format also make sure that file should be image.
