Are you still receiving them? Do you get nothing at all, including the message thread showing new message as well as no ring tone or led light, or some of it ?
I do get regular txt notification. Just not pictures.

Which phone do you have? Did you look in notifications settings to see how SMS/MMS is setup?
(Edited)
I have a Galaxy S4. I have looked at notifications. Not sure what I am looking for. It just suddenly stopped telling me when I have a picture message. I know data has to be on to send or open it. But why not even telling me that it's there?

Do you have "priority notifications" enabled? If so, nothing that isn't added to your priority list will come through.

Should be under your Settings > Sound & Notifications.
