Hi I recently purchased a Samsung galaxy s9. Sim free from Carphone warehouse. And I cannot send picture messages. I can receive them and normal text and 4g. I've tried most things suggested on your web anp settings.
And still no joy.
Any help most appreciated

Do you have sufficient airtime credit(pay as you go credit) ? MMS messages are not included in any goodybag allowances therefore, airtime balance is required.

For each MMS sent you are charged 16p. Airtime credit can be added here http://www.giffgaff.com/top-up (£10 minimum)

Also, you will need the correct APN/MMS settings and data enabled in order to send/receive MMS messages

This link http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Settings-for-your-device/Guide-Android-Phones/ta-p/3521671 guide you on setting up your Samsung S9 Mobile phone

The complete guide on MMS messages can be found here https://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Using-giffgaff/Guide-to-MMS/ta-p/7424204

@avoidparis1113 

do you have any airtime credit as MMS picture messages cost 16p each to send.

Hi @avoidparis1113  

 

Do you have airtime credit on your account? if not it won't be possible to send MMS as these cost 16p per MMS, which have to be a max 300kb each, these aren't covered by a goodybag.
