    Is anyone else having issues picture messaging? I can send texts fine, but pictures never go through.

    Are you using iMessage? If so make sure you have mms turned on in settings?

    This happens sometimes with me sending multiple photos through messaging.

    you didn't specify if you were using iMessage or not, but if you are:

    most likely your ISP is comcast/xfinity and you have a wireless gateway. there is something with the modem/router that blocks one of the ports and doesnt allow picture imessages to go through (it will load up to 95% and stop... 10 minutes later it goes through as a text message)

    you have to either call for a replacement or wait for a firmware upgrade

    your other option is to call comcast and put the wifi in bridge mode (virtually disabling it) and hook up your own router

    if you do not have comcast or a wireless gateway disregard everything i said

    In the core of a black hole.
    Same here, I tried to send a picture and the progress bar went all the way to about 90% but then got a warning it wasn't send, the first time ever I tried to send a MMS, did not work, on iOS 6 on a 3GS, and in Indonesia.
    MMS on, iMessage off, MMS settings are set.
    So, are there issues?

    Have you checked with your provider?
    Here they need to have mms codes added to the number, normally it's automatic though.

    I am a T-Mobile Customer. They have instructed to turn OFF WiFi and turn ON cellular data if you want to send MMS.

    Of course, MMS needs to be turned ON in iMEssage too.

    are you trying to send them through your carrier or through wifi? If you have LTE coverage, picture messaging (iMessage) is a breeze

    Is this true? I hadn't heard about that, I wonder why?
    I have Comcast but with an Apple AirPort Extreme router so obviously I don't have any problems.

    yes true. only with the wireless gateway from comcast though (personal experience and countless posts about same configuration/problem)
