Why Won’t My Phone Send Pictures

Popular Posts

Your iPhone won’t allow you to send photos. It doesn’t matter if you use Messages or Photos — it doesn’t matter. Your iPhone will display Not Delivered or your photos will stop halfway through the sending process. This article will explain why the iPhone won’t send photos and how you can fix it.

What you should need to know before we begin

To figure out why your iPhone isn’t sending photos, we first need to answer these questions. I’ll be happy to help with both.

Is it possible to send pictures using iMessage and regular text messages?

Every time you send or get a picture or text message from your iPhone, it is either an iMessage or a regular text message. The Messages app shows the iMessages that you send in blue bubbles and the text messages that you send in green.

Although they are integrated seamlessly into the Messages app messages as well as text messages use different technologies for sending pictures. iMessages can be sent via Wi-Fi or your wireless data plan. Regular text and picture messages can be sent using the text messaging service you have purchased through your wireless carrier.

If your iPhone can’t send photos, it is most likely with iMessages or text messages. Not with both. pictures can be sent with iMessages but not with text or picture messages. We need to fix each problem individually, even if we have a problem with one or the other.

Open the Messages app to find out if your iPhone has problems sending text messages or iMessage messages. You can also open a conversation with someone to who you cannot send photos to. Your iPhone will not send photos using iMessage if the messages you have sent to that person are blue. Your iPhone will not send pictures to your text messaging plan if the messages are in blue.

Is it okay to send pictures to more than one person?

Once you have determined whether your problem is with iMessages, text/image messages or iMessages, you can now determine if you are having trouble sending photos to all or just one person. As a test, send a photo to another person.

Before you send a test photo, ensure that you are sending it to someone who uses the same technology (iMessage, text/picture messages) and the person to whom you cannot send pictures. Let me explain:

Send a test image to another person who uses iMessage (blue balloons) if pictures don’t go through to them. Send a test image to someone whose messages are sent as text messages (in blue bubbles) if your pictures don’t go through using your picture or text messaging plan.

If a picture doesn’t get sent to one person, it is likely that the problem is on the user’s end. They may need to update their iPhones or contact their wireless carrier to resolve the issue. If your iPhone can’t send photos to anyone then the problem is on your side. I’ll give you solutions for both scenarios below.

Use iMessage to Send Pictures If Your iPhone Doesn’t Allow You To.

1. Check Your Internet Connection

iMessages can be sent via your iPhone’s internet connection. We will first test your iPhone’s internet connection. This is easiest if you first send a message with your wireless data plan. Next, try to send a message to your iPhone when it is connected to Wi-Fi.

If your iPhone can’t send photos even though it is connected to Wi-Fi, navigate to Settings-> Wi-Fi and turn off Wi-Fi. The cellular data network will be connected to your iPhone and you should see the 5G, LTE, or 4G icons in the upper left corner of the screen.

Send the image again. If the picture goes through, it is likely that your Wi-Fi connection is at fault. I have written an article explaining what you should do if your iPhone doesn’t connect to WiFi. When you’re done, turn Wi-Fi on again.

If your iPhone isn’t sending photos when connected to Wi-Fi, find a place with Wi-Fi and connect to it in Settings-> Wi-Fi. Then, try again to send the message. If the message is received, it’s likely that your iPhone’s cellular connection is the problem.

2. You must ensure that your cell phone data is turned on

Go to Settings-> Cellular to make sure that the switch next to Cellular Data is turned on. iMessages sent to you when you aren’t connected to Wi-Fi will be sent using your wireless data plan and not your text messaging plan. If Cellular Data is disabled, pictures sent as text/picture messages and pictures sent as iMessages will fail.

3. Is the Other Person Using iMessage?

Recently, I was able to help a friend who noticed that her messages were not getting through to her son when he switched to an Android phone. This is a common problem when someone moves to an Android phone but does not sign out of iMessage.

Let’s say your iPhone and iMessage server believe that the person has an iPhone. They try to send photos using iMessage but it never goes through. There’s an easy way to get rid of iMessage. Send them a message with a confirmation code and a link to Apple’s help page. They can disable iMessage online.

4. Reset Network Settings

A mistake in the Settings app could cause connection issues that can be difficult to diagnose. However, there is a way to quickly fix them all. Reset Network Setting allows you to reset only those settings that can affect how your iPhone connects with Wi-Fi or the cellular network. This is without affecting your personal information. It will be necessary to reconnect to Wi-Fi again. Make sure you have the password ready before you proceed.

Go to for the reset network settings of your iPhone Settings -> General > Transfer or Reset iPhone> Reset -> Network Settings Tap to enter your passcode. Reset Network Settings. Send another test message to your iPhone after it reboots.

If your iPhone still refuses to send photos, you can skip this section.

Your iPhone won’t send pictures if you have a picture messaging plan.

1. MMS Messaging must be turned on

We have already covered the two types of messages that can be sent via the Messages app: text/image messages and iMessages. To make matters more confusing, there are two types of text/picture messages. SMS, the first form of text messaging, sends very short messages. MMS, which came later, can send pictures and longer messages.

Regular text messages (SMS) can still be sent to your iPhone if MMS is disabled. However, pictures won’t work if MMS is disabled. Go to Settings-> Messages to make sure that MMS is on. Make sure to turn on the switch next to MMS Messaging.

2. Check For A Carrier Settings Update

Apple and your wireless carrier regularly push carrier setting updates to improve your iPhone’s connectivity to their network. If your carrier settings aren’t current, your iPhone may experience cellular problems.

A pop-up will usually appear on your screen when you update your carrier settings. Tap Update if you see this pop-up.

Open Settings and tap General-> About to manually check for carrier settings updates. If a carrier settings update has been made, a pop-up will be displayed in approximately ten seconds. If the pop-up does not appear, proceed to the next step.

3. Reset Network Settings

4. Get in touch with your wireless carrier

If your iPhone is experiencing problems connecting to your wireless carrier, it may be necessary to contact them. Technical outages or customer account problems can lead to MMS messages being not delivered. You will need to contact your wireless carrier to find out the truth.

Google search for “your wireless carrier” (Verizon or AT&T) is the best way to find out which number to call. wireless customer support number If you search for Verizon wireless customer support number, you will find it at the top of your search results.

If your iPhone isn’t sending photos,

My advice to you if you are still having trouble sending pictures from your iPhone depends on whether you can send photos to one person or to everyone.

Ask them if they are able to receive iMessages, text/photo messages from any person if you cannot send photos to one person. They may not be able to receive iMessages, but they might be able to text/picture messages or vice versa. It is a good idea to share the article with them, and then have them troubleshoot the problem themselves.

If you believe the problem is yours, the next step is to delete your conversation with them through the Messages app. Next, delete their contact from your iPhone and then follow the instructions to reset your network settings. After your iPhone restarts, enter their phone number in the Messages app. Then send them a picture message. You can send them a picture message if it works.

If you are interested in this still If this doesn’t work you might need to backup your iPhone to iCloud/iTunes, then restore your iPhone and then restore the data from the backup. Restoring an iPhone wipes out everything and reloads it with the latest software. This can resolve many software problems. DFU restore is the special type of restore Apple techs uses at their Apple Store. This article explains. How to restore your iPhone’s DFU settings.

Wrap it up

Send some photos to your friends and family now that your iPhone can send pictures again. Be careful. I know of someone who attempted to send a photo of his Christmas tree to all his family members in a group text but ended up accidentally sending something else. It was a very awkward Christmas. It was an awkward Christmas.
