    i cant figure it out for the life of me. esp when sending i always have issues, as the recipient never receives the picture.

    Nope just busy getting ready to start homeschooling tomorrow. ;)
    I found I needed to go into my handcent settings and set the Maximum MMS size to the largest. Thanks to this thread I just found out with the last update it's now 2M not 1.2M. Any ways, I was having problems even sending a simple text when it was set to anything smaller. Give that a try and see if that helps.

    Well, although I haven't had issues sending pics using Handcent, to anyone, EXCEPT those with an iPhone. This has been an ongoing issue but it's an issue on Att's side. It has something to do with the way they convert their pic messaging to MMS. So here's the work-around. When u attach a photo, click on "edit" and add a caption to the pic. Click save or whatever it is, THEN send it. it will work 100% of the time. I've just gotten into the habit of adding a caption to EVERY pic now, bc I have enough things to try and remember, u think remembering what friends have what phone is on the top of that list??!! LOL!

    Hope this helps!
