    I don't suppose anyone can help me? I'm trying to get picture messages to send without any luck. I've had the feature enabled on my account and received a few picture messages from friends but when I go t send a picture message, it just doesn't let me - keeps asking me to retry. Have I got some settings wrong? Thanks in advance.

    I'm also an Orange customer (different country though), and I have to activate my network connection to send the photos.

    Are you talking about attaching a pic to a text message?

    What do you mean by activating network connections to send photos?

    @Blkacesvf41
    Yes. I go to reply to a message, hit the paper clip symbol choose my photo and try and send with no luck whatsoever. I just want to send a picture of the snow we're having here to my parents. I've even tried changing the cameras settings to take VGA quality photos, but no luck. I've even tried grabbing an icon off of the web, again, no luck!!

    MMS (picture messages) will not get sent via WiFi. They require cellular data.

    That's the answer to meaning of "activate network connections".

    Oh, right, thanks for that! Yes, I have my mobile network connection on when I try and send them.

    Thank to the lovely chap who helped me over the phone with Orange. After an hour long call, we got the problem sorted and I have been able to send a picture message! I had to reset my phone but now I get to play with it again and customize it! :-D
