    For the past week I cannot send photos as a mms to any of my contacts. I was able to get a photo to go through iMessage to a couple of iPhone friends, but can't get anything out to anyone else; my phone tries, and then I get the red exclamation point and "message send failure". I can't figure out if it's my phone, my carrier or apple.

    I'm using an iPhone 4s, latest iOS, on Verizon.

    Is the MMS switch ON on the device settings app (into 'Messages') ?
    Also note that MMS requires a data connection while regular SMS will work with just the cellular signal.

    I checked that I had MMS turned on a few days ago, just in case I accidentally turned it off - nope, it was still on. And yes, I have a data connection as well.

    #5 wasn't that simple for me. Turns out an app called Onavo was causing my inability to send MMS messages. The app is gone and I'm in business.
