    I just called the apple care senior advisor that I spoke to yesterday. Left him a message to call me back I'm going to let him know that this issue is just not only with me. Hopefully he can get this fixed or address the issue to be fixed. I will keep you guys posted.

    Please let him know that this support thread has received over 20 updates today only (since I posted around 8am) all with exactly the same issue.  Please let us know so that we all don't call and innundate support & slow down the fix for everyone. Thanks!

    I too am having the same issue and I just got this phone a few weeks ago! It has got to be a problem with iMessage. I hope they solve the problem soon, its annoying! I love this phone! I just noticed it acting up within the last 24 hours. It was fine before that. Although someone just received a pic I sent and it was sent like an hour ago. Thats nuts! I'll keep my fingers crossed and keep me posted!

    Same here! I am only having this problem with my iPhone. My iPad works?! I can send everything but MMS on iMessage? I only noticed the problem last night. I've had this phone since October and never had a problem with it. My cousin who has the same and provider is not having this issue?! HELP!

    EVERYONE - what was the first thing that you tried to send that switched to text verses iMessage?  For me it was an apple maps pinned location followed by an HDR photo.  Everything after that has been sent via text.  I deleted the text with the maps pin & it seemed like it had fixed the problem (the photo sent to myself went through) but when I sent a second photo to a friend it failed again.

    Yes please let us know what applecare responds with. Thanks!


    I think the first failed picture I tried to send was a screen shot from my browser.

    Add me to the list of people that started having problems yesterday March 20, 2013 and still can't send photos today via iMessage.

    I've googled and tried everything I have found that might be a solution. I can only send plain texts with iMessage. This is very aggravating. My phone is a 4S  but still on ios 5.  I am about to update  but from what I've read I am not too encouraged that it will take care of the problem.


    I feel like there has to be a problem in the Apple server end for it to hit so many random people at the same time. I am looking forward to seeing if they can make this right. I used iMessage with photos everyday until this point and yes it's a first world problem, but it is a convenience I am accustomed to and want to have. :)



    BTW the first thing that failed for me was a photo I saved of a product I was buying my mon and sent to her for

    color approval.

    I am having the same problem. It happened last night and still playing up I can send messages fine but pictures will not send.

  • JerryPowerHouse Level 1 Level 1

    this is 100% apples server it has nothing to do with the firmware because someone here stated they went from 6.1.2 to 6.1.3 and the problem still persists. I'm on 6.1 and have the same problem. This started yesterday afternoon for me the last thing I sent was a video in the morning then around 1pm I got a explimation mark when I tried sending a picture.

  • RahmanS Level 1 Level 1

    I dont think the software update will make a difference. I updated to the new software and I am still having the same issue. Think there is a problem from Apples side. 


    Since last night I am not able to send pictures, but messages send perfectly fine . I use iMessage all the time to send picture unfortuantely I cannot now until they fix this issue.

  • Skummonkee Level 1 Level 1

    I updated thinking it would solve the problem, but it continues to send pictures as text. I am in a group chat with 5 other people and out of those 5 myself and one other person are experiencing the problem. I also own a iPad Mini and it doesnt seem to have the same problem. I have the same email address used for that iPad as well. It seems to be some sort of outage. Is there any way we can get a rep in this thread?


    First time poster,


  • fromsouth Level 5 Level 5

    Restore as new fixed it for me, but as soon as I got my back up back it was bad again.

    Started on ios 6.1.2 and continued on 6.1.3


    it does look like server, since thread started one day 7 month ago and continued now.
