    When you click "reply" and it takes you to the "Reply to Thread" area, scroll down a little and find the "Manage Attachments" button to add a screenshot. A popup should open letting you upload a pic. Now that I think about it, since you're new here, it may not let you upload the pic. give it a try tho.

    Are you using the default messaging app or another? The only app i"m aware of that does adds is the MyExtras app metro adds to the phone but i've never seen it in the mms app.

    Its almost gotta be an installed app.

    Titanium Backup and apps like it let you freeze apps instead of uninstalling them. Freeze a bunch of apps until you don't see the adds anymore. That will help you hunt down the offending app.

    OR for a quick fix, just do a factory reset. It will get rid of all the apps you've installed but also most likely get rid of the adds.
