That's just to subscribe to their incoming texts. There's no extra charge if you have unlimited texting.
The iPhone wont send it as an imessage unless it detects that the receiving end also has an iPhone. Do a backup of the phone using iTunes then restore it to factory. Try to send it to 2-3 non iPhones and see if it corrects the issue. Let me know how it goes.
I did as you suggested and it still does not text photos to an android. Nothing at all shows up for a message. On the blackberry I tried sending a photo to, they got a link to a website again.
Should I have all the options checked 'on', Imessage, sms, and mms?
My phone seems to have started working again by itself. I have trouble crediting the restore because it did not work until after lunch today and the restore was completed last night. I thank you for your time but it seems you guys should already be aware of this time delay if that is all that the problem was.
I spoke to the person I used to have no trouble sending photos to last night around 10 mst.. They still are not receiving any photos I send. Before I restored my phone they did get a message saying something was downloading but nothing ever did. Now they are not even getting that message.
I have given up on fixing this problem as it now seems to be only the one android phone I cannot text photos to. I have been told it must be the settings on the android. This seems like a funny coincidence since the problem happened immediately after I updated to 5.1.1 and imessage, however, the solutions I was told to try did make my phone able to send to other androids, so I think it must be a combination of the update and the settings somehow. I have no opportunity to play with the settings on the android and so am dead-ended.
I still cannot believe I am the only one who has encountered this problem.
If the problem is only to 1 Android phone then I doubt the problem is on your end even though it's coincidental that it started right after doing an update.
It's hard to say if your the only one with this specific problem, but from the years of helping people here on JA everyday, I haven't seen an Apple update restrict the ability to send to Android Phones.
