    Can't send pictures to any device via text messages, not even to myself. I always get the same error "Invalid Destination Address". I'm not sure if the latest update is responsible but it seem to have started when I let the phone do a system update. Here's a list of what I've done so far with no help.

    1. Emptied the cache for messages+ and forced stop and restarted the phone.
    2. Tried 2 other messaging apps.
    3. Sent to iphones.
    4. Sent to other android devices.
    5. Sent to myself.
    6. Made sure recipient numbers were correct. (even my own)

    By the way, no other device can send pics to me via text. Can anyone help?

    Indeed they are, but you should be able to share photos in other ways - can you send them as EMail attachments, or upload them to your Google Drive, Dropbox , OneDrive etc. and send the intended recipient a link to there?
