    OK, so my iPhone is AT&T and so is the rest of our family with the exception of my daughter who bought a new iPhone at the Verizon (her company only uses Verizon) store. Phone seems to be working OK but it will not _receive_ any images sent to it via text message. Is this a Verizon flaw or is something not set right in the settings? The rest of us have AT&T iPhones and we can all send/receive images via text messaging.

    My aunt, cousin, sister and I have iPhone's on Verizon. Works fine for us. Must be a software/ network issue in your area?

    I find that the most common problem is that '3G' is turned off. Although you can recieve normal sms with 3g turned off, it will not recieve mms (aka picture messaging). If 3g is turned on, then I am stumped.

    Hope I could help.

    All the best

    If 3G is on, I'd contact V to make sure they have MMS set up right. This was an issue with AT&T back when it first got MMS for the iPhone.
