    Question Trouble receiving Picture Messages

    I have searched and googled this topic with no resolution. I am unable to receive picture messages from one of my contacts. I am able to send picture messages to him. The last time I received a picture message from him was on Aug 22 of this year. He is also a verizon customer. Has something changed that I need to be aware of?

    I am using GO sms and they are using just the basic text program installed on their phone. They don't have the capability to download apps. I'm not sure what you mean by stock, rooted or Rom'd.

    If you are using the phone like it came from the store then it's referred to as stock. And why can't they download apps? If it's only the one contact that's weird. We're they added by Facebook to your contacts? I know sometimes that can cause them to not be reachable because it adds a 1 in front of the number or something strange like that.

    Can they send/receive to other people?

    Then it is a stock phone. They do not have a smart phone. Just a basic phone that can get to the internet/make phone calls/send text messages and take pictures. They were not added via facebook as they do not have an account. They can send picture messages to other people and they can receive picture message from me. I can receive text messages from them, but cannot receive a picture message.

    Maybe it's GoSms? I've heard people complain about other text messaging apps not receiving pics from certain contacts.

    You can try clearing your phones cache too just to see if it helps. Turn the phone off, hold volume down and power until fast boot appears on your screen. Then press volume down 7 times to select android recovery and press volume up to select it. At the next screen press volume up and volume down at the same time and from there wipe cache then reboot. You won't lose anything from your phone by doing so.
