    Recently some text messages are being displayed in my status bar as picture messages so instead of getting a preview of the message it just displays a little graphic that represents a picture message, even though these messages are regular text once I go to them to reply. Any idea why it would do this? Is anyone else having this happen to them? Oh and if it matters I am stock un-rooted and still locked though i intend to fix that soon DancingNexus

    Thanks in advance guys.

    Have you tried clearing the cache of the Messaging App?

    I'm having the opposite problem. Just got an LG Lucid and one friend (with a two year old, non-droid, non-BB phone) is getting my texts as MMS and they are difficult for her to read. I'm not adding sound, just the occasional :). No sounds, no nothing. I'm using "VZ Messages" at my text app...would that be doing it? We text a lot, so I need to resolve this for her.
