    Welcome to the forums!

    Are you using the stock messaging app or third-party, such as Handcent, Chomp, etc.?

    did you find a solution to this problem as I am having the same thing happen. I did find a thread that suggested receiving picture texts from iphones could be the problem and that the iPhone had to change its setting.

    I came across this in another forum


    1 go to settings

    2 wireless and network

    3 mobile networks

    4 access point names

    5 click menu button

    6 reset and You are done

    I then switched my phone off and back on again and have received my first picture text

    I removed the battery and put it back in. Downloads worked. Verizon said the card was going bad and needs to be replaced.

    The fix above worked for me too except when someone using an iPhone sends me a picture. We're both on AT&T. I'm Android and the other is Apple. Never figured that one out.
