    Hello forum.

    I am having issues sending pictures via text anytime my phone is connected via WiFi. As soon as I turn Wifi off, the message sends.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Text messages send pictures via data connection. Make sure your data is on also. I use Handcent for texting and you can see the data being used to send pictures.

    Thanks for the response.

    I still see the 4g signal but it is gray when Wifi is connected.

    I use stock text app.

    My does same thing on WiFi too. But as soon as I send an attachment to any text message the data signal lights up and sends the message. I'm thinking it might be in the settings of message app. I'll see what I can find. Check yours out too.

    Like aarong03 stated, the phone needs a data connection to send MMS messages, even when on WiFi. When you are connected to WiFi, is your Mobile Data toggle set to "Off"? Do you have a Smart Action in place that turns Mobile Data to Off when connected to WiFi?

    Aarog is right. It is working now. For some odd reason.

    I appreciate the help all!

    Sorry for the silly question.
