    You say 'pic message' in your title, but just 'message' in your text. Did you in fact send no messages at all? SMS sometimes gets converted to MMS if you use emojis, so we need to know what you mean.

    Welcome to Android Central! Group texts are also MMS.

    And if you have your text app set to not break texts, it sends the whole text as MMS if it's longer than 160 characters.

    Also, for all we know, someone else could have used your phone to send MMS messages.
    You haven't responded with more information so obviously we can't help you properly.

    Clicking details does not explain anything. It just tells me my phone used com.android.mms

    From what I have gathered, it means that my phone either sent or received a photo message, a message longer than 160 characters, or a message containing an emoji.

    I have not sent or received any of those. So why is it showing up on my activity as an action performed? What does it mean? I am not worrying about anything so 'nothing to worry about' is not really an answer to my question. Can anyone else help maybe?

    It means any devices associated with that account made a message. Either you did or not I cant answer that for you .

    Sometimes another function needs to use a function in that file, so it runs the app (or it can't use the function). Since SMS and MMS coma as a pair (there's no separate SMS or MMS app you can run), sending a two word text could still be using some function in com.android.mms.
