Can't seem to text photos taken on my phone, have a droid running 2.2 with FRG22D update. Photo sizes are around 1kb. Are they to large of files to text? Do I need to re-size smaller to text? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I recommend using "Handcent SMS" for all your text messaging needs; it will resize the photo automatically.

No luck even sending to self, says unable to send at this time will send to service until able, so far I'm stumped, believe I should be able to send MMS messages. Keep playing with settings see what happens. If have any further ideas i'm open to them, greatly appreciated.

I did just notice that am no longer able to change pixel size in camera anymore since updates, wanted to try and shoot at 1 or 2 megapixels to see if could send pic, but can't change pic size anymore, does this mean camera stuck at 5 megapixels?

I'm not sure what your using to text pictures. I just sent a photo from my camera by pressing the menu and selecting messaging to my daughter and she replied "got it". Is that what your trying to do?

It sounds like there might be something wrong with your Droid, as opposed to you doing something wrong. Were you ever able to send pictures in an message, or did this start recently? What I do is, I take a picture, look at it in the picture viewer, click share, and can send it to an individual. very simple. What exactly is your method that yo have been trying?

Using the same method as you, take pictures then try to share through viewer but to no avail, just continually says message being sent is pending or unable to send at this time. Right now I'm using Handcent for texting but neither this one or stock work. I have only been able to send 1 photos since have had phone.

Yes to both, still haven't fiqured it out, I set Handcent MMS size to max which is 2M, last photo tried to text was 1500kb. Odd because I can upload all my photos to my Smugmug acct with no problem. Guess will have to see what Verizon has to say.

Have you previously rooted your phone and installed a custom rom, before you got the official 2.2 update? I saw on another forum some other people were having this problem and they thought it was because they had rooted before.

They suggested turning off voicemail forwarding, seemed to help some, not others. Also the guy finally called version and they ended up sending him a new phone.

No one, have been going back & forth on giving root a try. Just coincidence that it worked after. Am very happy I rooted, no problem as of yet but noticeable difference in speed of phone. Also was able to re-upgrade to FRG22D after rooting.

I had the same problem. I called i wireless and they walked me through it. It is fixed. you have to go to settings; wireless and networks; mobile networks; access point names; change the web 2 to web 1. You have to do this every time you send a pic, or recieve. I hope this helps!
