    hey everyone,

    i have been having so many problems with my iphone 4. It sometimes says can't connect to wifi even though I am right next to the router and other wierd stuff. But just recently, i realized it won't let me send pictures. I tried to than a red exlamation mark shows up next to the picture. I am thinking of going to apple and demand for a replacement. Any help?

    Thanks in advance

    A red exclamation for me today also - photos could not be downloaded to iPhoto - message is that file is not recognized. On top of that, the HD video is very poor quality (soft focus, excessive grain, low contrast). The still images are only so so.

    Also, the screen does not orient (landscape / portrait) when I rotate the phone sometimes - frequently takes 2 - 3 seconds - my iPad orients properly all the time and very fast.

    While my initial experience was very positive I returned it today - too many issues and 30 days is about up.

    well, go to setting>general>network>turn cellular data on. Cellular data isn't needed to make calls or to send sms text. but it is needed to send mms messages.

    hope it helps

    Hey Guys,

    I have just been having the same Problem.

    I spoke to Orange 5 Times who ran me thought some diagnostics which to be honest didn't do much but they where all very nice.

    So about 10 Mins ago, I turned my 3G (Mobile Data) on and tired. Now at first i had the little (o) This means 2g // Then i had (E) This Means Edge //

    Now for some reason unknown to me i was able to send my picture message on (E) dont ask me how i just was.

    This is the order of the G's

    (o) = 2G
    (3G) = 3g
    (E) = Edge
    (H) = (Cant remember but this is the best)

    So basically if you cannot send messages, Make sure your MMS Setting is ON // Try Turning off iMessage // Mobile Data ON // Data Roaming OFF // Wifi OFF // Show Subject Field ON/OFF


    Hope this helps.
