    Good morning all, bit frustrated with my new S22.

    Issue:
    When sending a photo or gif to anyone on iPhone I receive invalid destination address.

    Steps I Took:
    cleared message cache
    Soft reset
    Toggled airplane mode
    Tried different messages apps (not sure why you need 2)

    Vzw sent replacement s22 same issue.

    Anyone make sense of this issue?

    Thanks
    Steve

    I remember reading something about this.

    The Iphone user won't receive it on their iPhone until the MMS and Group Messaging options are enabled.

    They may not realize that these off if they receive pictures or emojis over iMessage from other iPhone users. That's because iMessage doesn't need MMS enabled to receive pictures.

    To enable MMS Messaging and Group Messaging, head to Settings > Messages > MMS Messaging and turn this on. Then, turn on Group Messaging, which is right below.

    I am a little late to this post but I had the same issue, could not send pics to an iphone or send and receive group text, with an S22 ultra I purchased yesterday. I called Verizon technical assistance from a different phone at TY the Verizon store and they were able to make network changes and solved the problem in about 15 minutes. Apparently this is a common issue according to people at Verizon store.

    Apparently I missed numerous group texts yesterday. While my new phone would not send or receive any group texts. Does anyone know how to recover those texts that I did not receive?

    Thanks Dee...so the changes VZW made...were they on their end, or were they settings on your device? Thanks again.

    The changes seemed to be on their end. The tech asked me to power down the phone, and then it took a few minutes for the changes. He kept giving me updates like we are at 20% progress, 80%..... so on. When he asked me to power up my phone again and test it, my group messaging worked, and I was able to send and receive messages to iPhone. And I could send and receive pictures again.

    Got it. Thanks. Reason I asked is apparently VZW was having some "text messaging" problems in early late December and early January. I too lost the ability to participate fully in group texts. I went from receiving only, but my replies would fail, to not receiving, but individuals would get the replies -- but individually, and not in the group text.

    If I wasn't such a creature of habit, and wasn't so technically overwhelmed, I would leave VZW and head to ATT. I just can't bring myself to do it, LOL.
