    Anyone else notice that MMS on iphone 5 is not working when sending to non apple devices? in this case it was particularly while on wifi and im guessing it may be related to the wifi issue

    I've had issues with this. Tried sending several pictures to my gf who has a non iPhone and she never received them. This was on LTE with no wifi.

    I never got anything saying the message wasn't sent. She just never received them.

    Not sure what to do

    This maybe network based and not iPhone based. Contact your provider.

    There is a far easier solution. I found (as have many others) that the problem is caused by profiles that get installed on your phone. To check to see if there are any go to settings > general, then go all the way to the bottom of the page just before reset and see if any "profiles" are installed. If so, remove and then try. Worked for both me and my girlfriend. Hope this helps!

    This is still a problem for every iPhone user I know. There was a work around where if u turned iMessage off it let you send but that no longer works!
