    I spent all of this money on a phone that can't do something as simple as sending a picture message?

    I have three 3g bars yet it won't send a pic or video message. My three year old flip phone xan do that in a blink of an eye

    Any ideas on wht I'm having this issue.

    Shirlies...

    I've tried Handcent, Chomp, and the stock messenger. Either takes around 30 mins to send or it wont send at all.

    I just use the stock SMS app that came with the phone and I am able to send pics/vids without any problems. Maybe the network in your area perhaps?

    i just used the stock sms too and had no troubles attaching a pic....when you are composing a message, hit the menu button and then attach and what do you see?..i get the option to send a pic, capture a pic or send video....seems like it is pretty standard fair for the droid..

    and it went thru in seconds...

    did not see you 2nd post...you already know how to attach the pic..it just wont send..i shouldnt look at the forum til i've had my first cup of coffee...but mine did go thru in seconds and the pic was big so it had to resize it...

    I just took a pic and emailed it to myself and texted it to my wife. Each pic (droid resized it) took about 25 seconds to be received. I'm using handcent on wifi right now.

    Battery pull is seeming to work. Just sent three messages and they worked just fine except one.

    I sent it to my friend and it says it sent but when she goes to open it, it says "Unsupported Content" but one worked last night (after 45 mins sending)

    Must be because she has T-Mobile?

    they should all go through. The Droid should resize it for sending are you ignoring the prompt to resize?

    Doesn't say anything about resizing. Now it's taking forever to send again.

    This is really frustrating.

    you've mentioned you are using or have used Handcent, Chomp, and the stock messenger. Which one are you using and have you set it to the DEFAULT messaging app?
