As stated, I cannot send or receive them. And yes, I've tried all the normal fixes and a few others I researched. Looks like Samsung needs a hotfix for us Note owners!
As of this morning, picture and group messaging began working. I did nothing on my end and my phone did not update; it had to be AT&T. They must have updated something on their end overnight to address the issue with the last Samsung update.
Did you ever upgrade your network? I bought my phone unlocked and the at&t kept telling me I should upgrade my data plan to 5g. I didn't want to because we don't have 5g ready yet in our state. I hope it's not some BS at&t way for us to upgrade our plans and pay more.
I got fed up and downloaded Google messenger. Because apparently SAMSUNG CUSTOMER SERVICE does not care about fixing the problem beside giving us a BS link which does not help. Smh.
