Picture messaging doesn't work through wifi. You'll have to enable your data in your phone settings in order for this to work.

Hi guys....thanks for your response. How do you enable data? I thought I had....I'm able to check emails, go on the safari etc. I was able to send pictures just yesterday. When I go to send now it just keeps saying "message failure"

Try sending a picture message to yourself to test the sending and receiving. Tap settings/General/Cellular and make sure cellular data is on. If the sending and receiving works try sending a picture msg to someone else... let us know how it goes!

Make sure you shut off data roaming just in case! :)

Are you near the border? Data roaming should not have any effect unless you are connected to a US tower.
