Thanks for getting back to us csahaynes. Are you using the stock messaging app on your phone or Verizon Messages? If using the stock messaging app on your phone, you will need to enable the mobile data on your device to send and receive pictures. If using the Verizon Messaging app on your phone, you should be able to send/receive pictures via wifi.
