my iPhone 3GS also will not send pictures, i can recieve them fine, but not send them.  MMS server must be down right now because I was able to send them up until today.

Make sure your iPhone running the latest firmware update (3.1.2). Then go to Settings => General => Reset => Reset Network Settings.

Are you running the latest firmware? Connect to iTunes and it will tell you if there is an update to download.  The update came out last September.

Try updating the software as others have said, and see if it works for you then.

I'm currently updated with firmware. Updated network settings. When trying to send from the photo album there are no errors.  I can see them in my mail outbox, they appear to go out and are moved to the sent folder but no one ever receives them. I send to my PC email accounts to test. No luck. Any ideas?

I'm running into this problem as well.  I no longer get the photo icon next to my text area when sending messages, nor have the button to send pictures as MMS when in my photos or camera roll on my iPhone.

 

Hopefully the local apple store will be able to solve the problem after work today.  If so I'll post with the fix for others experiencing this issue.

Do you actually have MMS turned on?

Settings > Messages > MMS Messaging.

Good luck, just got a 3gs a month ago and have never been able to send pictures in texts.  I was in AT&T store for and hour and a half.  They tried switching sim cards, didnt work.  Tried swapping phones, wouldnt work.  Called apple support in store, they tried a few different things.  Wouldnt work.  Talked to apple support again when I got home was on phone for another hour and they tried everything they could.  Was getting helped by the highest level of support with apple and AT&T and no one has a clue.  And guess what, still cant send pics.  Ive just decided to give up so good luck getting any help that actually solves the problem.

I have a iphone 4 & had a 3GS before my iphone.  I would have to resend a mms 20-30 before it went through.  But we got 3G in our area in October.  Now all my mms go through 1st try.  So basically I guess if you live in a Edge area you're going to have problems sending mms.

thank you! i've been trying to figure out why my photo icon on my txts all of a sudden dissappeared. I didn't turn off my messaging though..so this means my phone turned it off, and changed my network settings too. thank god for these posts because it was really bugging me!
