texting pic

Post by woodchip » Tue Jun 20, 2017 8:39 am

While I have no problem texting pics withing the borders of the US, I tried to text a pic to someone in Germany and it didn't go thru. The text portion did. Is there something special to text pics to a foreign country?

The person on the other end's phone/network may not support the same multimedia message protocol used here, host the image on an image sharing site or facebook or whatever and send them a link to that instead, that should almost always work (barring the great firewall of china for example).

If he has Signal or WhatsApp you can send it to him using that. As a bonus, you'll get end-to-end encryption.
