I was wondering if there's way to receive pictures directly to my text conversation, instead of a link to the browser. Even if it involves switching to a new SMS app. Thanks!

Hi Kyle,

 

Not quite sure what you mean. Which device are you using, and do you have data? Are your current picture messages not getting delivered to you?

You'd get better answers if you gave more details about your phone and the SMS app you are using.

What you describe is the normal way SMS/MMS texting works for everyone so if it's not working for you then there is something wrong.

 

Are you getting the links from everyone who sends you pictures or just one person? The problem might be the way the other person is sending it to you.

Also keep in mind picture messages require data to be enabled.

 

Does the device have a working data connection?
