Can't send or receive picture messages on Nexus 6p. Can't download picture message Nexus 6p. MMS not working on Nexus 6p. Unable to send and receive picture messages on a Nexus smartphone.
If you're having trouble sending or receiving picture messages on your Nexus 6p, here are a couple things you can try to fix this issue:
- Power off your device completely, then power it back on
- Make sure you have a network connection (if you have No Service click here)
- Go to Settings > Data Usage and make sure cellular data is on and there is no data limit blocking you
- Note: You NEED a data connection on your Nexus smartphone to be able to send or receive picture messages (MMS). If you have a data block with your provider, make sure to contact them to remove it.
- Go to Settings > More... > Cellular networks > Access point names and make sure you have your Carrier's APN settings configured. This is the most important step as without the proper APN settings you won't be able to download picture messages! (For all APN settings click here)
- Turn your WiFi OFF and try sending or downloading the picture message
