    imessage claims pictures are delivered, but they are never recieved.

    Hi everybody,
    This is my first post here, I come from a different forum that has been unable to help me with my problem for several days so perhaps someone here has some knowledge.

    I use my phone constantly, sending several pics a day.
    A couple days ago I discovered that people where not getting my pics.
    The pic is sent, through imessage and claims to be delivered but the recipient never gets it.

    I have tested it with phones side by side, and while the pic is sending the recipient gets the "..." as if I'm typing, once the message sends and says delivered on my end, the recipient gets nothing and the ... disappears.
    This is the same with all media files, video and voice notes. I have tried all sizes of picture and this person had no problem receiving pics for me before.
    Normal text messages seem to go through, we have tried probably 40 pics over the last few days, not 1 has gone through.
    If I turn imessage off and uses MMS it sends fine, to the same person and to any one else.

    I have tried turning it off and reactivating it, tried just on wifi or just on 3g... no change.

    Today I also found a new issue which may or may not be related, when I try to use facetime on the callers end it shows that the recievers video is paused, on the recievers end it freezes on accept/decline.
    I am unable to place or receive facetime calls.

    I am using an iphone 4 with ios 5.0, it is jailbroken but nothing new installed anytime recently.
    All of these features where working fine a week ago.

    what carrier are you using and what devices are you sending the pics to? also it could be worth checking the mms settings that they are correct
    iPhone 5s 64GB Space Grey (Factory Unlocked)
    iPhone 5c 32GB Blue (Factory Unlocked)
    iPhone 5 64GB White (Factory Unlocked)

    iPhone 4 32GB Black (Factory Unlocked)

    iPad Air 128GB WiFi + 4G

    Firmware: What ever the latest one is: 7.XX

    As I mentioned MMS sends fine, so its pretty safe to say it is neither carrier or MMS settings that are the issue.
    I am using Rogers, but the network is fully operational, friends using rogers iphones can send me pics and all normal text and mms are working fine, it is just imessenger and facetime.
    Also, as I mentioned these problems continued when i killed all connections and used just wifi, so certainly not carrier related.

    I have no trouble sending photographs or videos via iMessage. The person on the other end has no trouble receiving or sending either. It may have something to do with your phone. I'd suggest ringing apple customer services.

    Ok friends, after days of attempts to fix it, I have successfully fixed the problem.

    Just a run through of symptoms:
    imessage texts send with no problem, any media (pic, video or audio) claim they are delivered but the recipient NEVER gets them.
    problem is not isolated to one person, i could not send anyone with imessenger any media.
    mms works fine

    IF THIS SOUNDS LIKE YOUR PROBLEM, AND YOU ARE JAILBROKEN... here is how I fixed it.
    FOR ANYONE HAVING THE SAME ISSUE... HERE IS THE FIX
    I am on ios 5 semi tethered jailbreak
    I do not know exactly which of these steps did the trick, but here is what I did
    1. updated color keyboard (cydia prompted me that there was an update, so I updated it)
    2.uninstalled siri0us (in cydia)
    3. uninstalled erika utilities (in cydia - this must have come with something as I dont remember installing it myself)
    4. turn off the device, and boot in untethered mode (that is without plugging it into a computer and running redsnow, this only works with semitether - which if you are tethered jailbroken you should get)
    5. send an imessage picture message while in untethered boot (this is not the same as safemode)
    6. reboot the device tethered with redsnow
    VOILA, every pic msg has gone through flawlessly since. I have yet to try facetime but I am confident it will also work.

    That there are bugs in some of the thousands of free tweaks and apps that people have so kindly created and give away for free?
    No one is perfect, well worth what it enables me to do.

    Hi everyone

    I have the same problem with iMessage. I have an untethered jailbreak of iOS 5 (I've had the untethered jailbreak since it was released by redsn0w and it's the b3 version of it), and I was able to send pictures through iMessage fine until a few days ago. I don't remember what I installed from Cydia the day iMessage stopped delivering my pictures, but I don't have siri0us or Erika utilities installed.

    What do I do? I relied heavily on sending pictures/videos through iMessage. I also don't know how to go into "untethered boot mode" if that's any different from safe mode.

    I have the same problem as you, iMessage tells me my pictures are delivered but my recipient doesn't receive them.

    Please help!

    I'd really rather not do that. I'm so in love with it jailbroken that I'd give up sending pictures through iMessage. Lol

    I'd like a fix, though. Hopefully someone can help.
