Samsung Galaxy J7 crown can't send/receive pictures or group messages.

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I have a Samsung Galaxy J7 crown that I recently purchased from Tracfone. Texting was working perfectly fine for a couple of weeks, but now I can't send/receive pictures or group messages. I'm not sure what to do. Also, my mobile hotspot has stopped working. Please help.

Okay, so I talked to Tracfone customer service and it turns out the problem was that my data had run out. I bought another GB of data and now my phone is back to working perfectly. Thank you all of the help. Smiley Happy

Does the issue occur with the device in safe mode?

Yes, I tried sending a picture in safe mode and it didn't work. So it's not an app I downloaded... Could it be some setting that got turned off? Or an app that I disabled?

Do you know if the software on your phone is up to date?

Yes, I just checked and it doesn't look like there are any updates. Also, I reset my settings and I still had the problem. I was guessing the problem was that I changed one of the settings and that caused the issue. I have no idea what's wrong now.

Do you think a factory restart would work? I don't want to try it and erase all of my stuff if it won't fix the problem.

@userhErDw4FUrx Have you tried resetting the network settings? Just a heads up, by resetting the network settings, it will remove all wi-fi and Bluetooth settings you currently have saved.
