    When someone sends me a multimedia message containing an image,and I am not in the 3G network, no icon in top bar on phone, the image does not come in. I do get the text but no image.

    When I do get to a 3G area the image still does not come in.

    If I am in a 3G area and get sent a message with a picture the image will come in.

    I also cannot send a picture via multimedia unless I am in a 3G area.

    I don't know if I set something on phone wrong or what.

    Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions.

    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    I believe that the image is broadcast across the 3G data network. If you're not in a 3G coverage area all it will likely send will be the text. Moving to a 3G area won't help at that point since you've already received the message.

    Thanks for the info.
    When I get the chance while in a 3G area I will ask the sender to resend message and see what happens.

    Very good site.Will be back many times.
