    Ever since I switched from the iPhone to the G4 I am having a hard time sending MMS messages. What am I doing wrong? Did I miss a setting? Are my pictures too big? When I try to send, it keeps "sending". Like it's trying, but then fails. I'm on Verizon network. I have bars, on wi-fi and 4G. Please help! :blink:

    I don't think it's your settings or your phone that's the problem. My galaxy s4 started doing the same thing yesterday. I cannot send MMS messages, but I can send SMS messages. I'm going to contact Verizon and find out if there's anything they can do to fix the problem.

    I've been having the same problem with my S4. Since I got a few weeks ago I have only ever been able to send 1 MMS message successfully. All attempts have been sent to the same Verizon phone. I thought maybe it was the size.

    The s4 has an issue with the hand-off between mobile data and wifi.... Sometimes when we're on wifi and switch to mobile to send an mms the phone still thinks it's on wifi and vzw's lovely network does not support mms over wifi. It's an issue that effects most but not all.... Some have reported that 3rd party apps work better with switching between wifi and mobile data.

    I rebooted the phone and now it works. At least for 1 MMS message, haven't tried any more at this time.

    I had issues with MMS when using Handcent. I sent the same pic using the built in Messaging app and it worked fine.

    Yeah they won't send over wifi, odd but I've had other phones that had the same restriction

    Some people have reported success using Go SMS. A previous post suggested certain 3rd party apps were better at this; this might be one.
