I have an S5 with wifi and data both always on. Sometimes I can receive picture messages no problem, and other times I don't see anything. No blank message, no notification, nada. This has occured with more than one sender. Any ideas how to fix this?

I think you should first try to take out the internal battery and do the reboot phone procedure.
After try to only have data or wifi on one at a time.
It also depends on what app you are using for your text messages.
Are you using the stock Samsung messaging app or another 3rd party app?

Picture messages only work over your phones data connection not wifi so wifi wouldn't matter.
