I can't send picture messages from my iPhone 4 for about a week now. I have the plan where it's in there but the just don't deliver. Is there something I can do?

Is you data turned off or was a data block added on?

Cellular Data is required for picture messages (even though there is no charge for it).

Wifi won't work for picture messaging

Does this mean that I must have a Koodo data plan for picture messages to work - even though no data usage will be charged?

You don't need a data plan. You just need the data pipeline to be open. So data needs to be on and data block can't be on the account.

The safest way would be to change the APN of your data settings except for MMS

I had to reset my network settings and then it started working. My phone one day just stopped sending picture messages and I didn't know why or how to fix it but I did as Dennis said and now it's working
