Can't text photos

    One things that sucks about the camera is that, if you don't hit the "share" button immediately (while you're reviewing the photo, before it reverts to taking pictures), you have to exit the camera app and open the Gallery, from which you can then send the photo.

    This week I took a few great bird-eye photos of the WTC memorial (my office is across the street from it) and tried to text them to friends of mine in other parts of the country. They all failed. The only nofication I got regarding the failure is a red triangle on the message, without a reason for the failure. Resending doesn't work either. Am I doing something wrong?

    Are you rooted? What sms/mms app are you using?
    Check out the 4th post in this thread for a possible fix if you are having mms issues but txt works fine.

    I'm not rooted and I'm running the stock app. Thanks, I'll give it a shot!

    If that doesn't work (you might need root, not sure) you should call VZ tech support.

    Btw you do have mobile data turned on, right?

    Just a little side note on the first part, if you click the little film icon on the left bottom that will bring up your last picture. And were you on WiFi at the time? I can never send them on WiFi.

    Clicking in that icon will bring up the last photo, but (from my phone anyway) it does not give you the option to 'share' it, so you have to exit the camera app and open the Gallery. PITA.

    Yes, I was on 3g the times I tried it.
