    new droid owner...having issues with text messages -my first phone using texts...cannot get pictures in my text messages (in coming) what is wrong? I checked the data and the saver issues... the text says 'ssss.jpg file removed) at the bottom of my incoming text message... why? can't you receive jpg files in texts? I know I have sent other people jpg files from my computer to their phones.... :blink:

    check here open text app> messaging settings> Auto-retrieve check that

    hope that works

    Not likely, unless its coming via an email, are you using a texting app? Or the SMS preloaded into the phone

    I have always been able to send text messages from my computer... as long as I use the phonenumber@vtext.com (verizon phone accts)...I can send email from computer to cell phones as text... do it all the time with my daughter... forward her pictures from my PC to her cell phone.....
