I have an iPhone 3GS, and I downloaded and installed iOS 6 today when I came home.  It has been fine, except for the whole Passbook issue which most people seem to be having, but I fixed that.  I cannot figure out why my picture texts don't send though. My iMessage pictures send. MMS is on, data is on. Any suggestions? Thanks(:

    I want help with this too.  iMessage works fine, regular SMS works but when I try to send a MMS to a non-iPhone it won't work.


    I'm also running iOS 6 on my 3GS, which I like so far except this problem!

    Because apple doesnt care about you for the next 2-3 months since you are not payign them $700 for the new phone you get to use one that doesn't work. Welcome to the next generation.

    Yeah, I know apple doesn't care, and it really ****** me off.  The only reason I'm keeping ios 6 is for the do not disturb feature. That's the only thing the 3gs got out of this, we don't get any of the features on the new map app, for some reason. It's not really like our phone's not capable of it, but whatever. Sometimes I think apple purposely adds these bugs in to try and get people to buy a new phone.  They're terrible.


    Anyway, if somebody has to know how to fix this, since clearly more people than just me have this problem.

    Talk to your carrier, SMS and MMS are managed by the carrier.

    Yeah, but it worked until ios 6. I didn't get a new phone, new number, or anything. This is apple's fault, not att.

    Did you switch in Settings > Messages > Show Subject Field : OFF?

    If it's ON switch it OFF.

    That happened to me. I fixed it by going to Settings > Messages > MMS Messaging: ON

    1. delete any profiles you have saved settings>general>profile  delete if you see profile there if not go to step 2

    2. turn on wifi (my internet was also not working)

    3. open safari

    4. type iapnupdatetfdata.straighttalk.com

    5. download profile

    6. turn off wifi

    7. turn off phone

    8. turn on phone
