Delay in receiving a photo via a text message.

Delay in receiving a photo via a text message.

I have an APPLE 3GS iphone.   When someone sends me a text message with a photo attached - why does it take a couple of days to reach me ??  Is there a setting I need to change ? 

Thanks

if you send to yourself and it is delayed then it is your account that has something wrong, if it comes through right away then it is the person you are trying to send to and not you.
