    I just got my phone today, it's unlocked. Everything works but I just can't send or receive picture messages. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    The only thing I can think of is to try rebooting into recovery and clearing your phone's cache.

    I don't feel like I really helped. Best I could think of though. If it doesn't work, keep checking the post. Some users don't log in for a few days. Push comes to shove, you can try a Factory reset, even though clearing of the cache does the same thing except wiping all apps.

    Sounds like the APN might not be correct. What is the carrier branding for the phone and what's the service you are using?

    You said the phone is unlocked. Is it a tmobile phone, or just and unlocked gsm?

    I recommend calling tmobile and asking for their full APN settings, and adjusting the settings in your phone to match.

    In the mean time, you can try the settings here

    If they work, it saves you a call, but if it doesn't, tmobile should have the proper APN for you.

    You should reboot your phone. Reboot of phone can erase all your contacts & messages. Save them some where else before rebooting.

    You should reboot your phone. Reboot of phone can erase all your contacts & messages. Save them some where else before rebooting.
    Just for future reference, rebooting is turning the phone off, then turning it back on - but without actually turning the power off. All it does is force the phone (or any computer) to reload the operating system from scratch. (The OS has to be loaded from storage to RAM every time a computer is turned on.)

    Maybe you meant reflashing the ROM - which is BAD advice if the user doesn't know exactly what he's doing. It could result in a permanently unusable phone.
