I just got the Intercept for VM last week and I'm having the same problem. What's odd is that I have a friend that can send me pictures on his iphone on AT&T no problem, but I have another friend that uses an iphone on AT&T and when she sends me pictures it just comes through as a blank text message. I used to have the Rumor 2 and didn't have trouble with receiving or sending pictures. Also, my one friend that uses Sprint, she used to be able to send me pictures on my Rumor 2 but now when she tries to send pictures to my Intercept they just show up as blank text messages. I'm able to send pictures to anyone. Sometimes though, the picture won't send, it will just have that little icon next to it with the little clock like it's waiting to send. If I turn off the phone and turn it back on (which takes forever) it will usually fix it.
