    Its probably the network being slow on the upload speed.

    They can be having issues. I don't know and can't really help you since I don't have Verizon. Sorry. :(

    If it's an iMessage it's almost instant because of the LTE, but if it's a standard MMS, couldn't tell you, I haven't sent one yet

    MMS usually takes longer.
    Its not as instant as a simple text message.
    But you can click send and exit the messages app. You dont have to sit there and look at it till the bar fills up.

    What's the size of the image? Verizon has a limit on size. If too large, it won't go.

    Mine appears to be going slower on AT&T using imessage to send pictures. Doesn't seem to matter what size. image from the net, image taken with camera, or screen shot. They all seem slower than what I remembered using my 4s, but I also haven't used the 4s since the iP5 announcement when I sold it.

    It always goes.
    The network automaticly shrinks it and resizes it before its send out to the recipients device. So the quality you have on your phone is not what will arrive at the other persons phone.
    To get the actual size and quality you should use imessage or email.
