And when you get back to a more main menu, make sure that mobile data is ON in that setting. And then reboot.

On my Galaxy Ace 2x, the APN type is set to: default, mms (exactly as shown). Default indicates the default mobile data connection, mms indicates an MMS-specific mobile data connection. MMS is an abbreviation for Multimedia Messaging Service. Picture messages are sent/received using this service.

If picture messaging is still not working, set the APN type to default. You can also try an asterisk, without the brackets (*) if default doesn't work. Remember to save the modification before exiting. If you have more than one APN set up, delete/discard the one you're not using. A reboot of the phone normally isn't necessary after modifying the APN, but it doesn't hurt. Make sure to save any modifications to the APN before rebooting.
