I was going crazy not being able to send pictures. When I tried your first suggestion to reboot the phone it worked!!
I cant send picture thru text messaging using Wi-Fi….My S6 did without a problem and that was the default app that came with the phone…I did many resets on this phone and I’ve only had a week now; so far can’t stand the S10…I shouldn’t have to pay for an app that will send pictures on Wi-FI only…..I need a new FREE SIM CARD to try and fix this issue or the network needs to allow this….
I AGREE ITS PISSING ME OFF!!
