    Been a while since I last posted ...
    I have a 4S and did jailbreak with Absinthe.
    I am not sure when the problem started but I can not send pictures using iMessage.
    Plain text DOES work in iMessage.
    Pictures sent via MMS work.

    When sending a picture using iMessage I would get "message delivered" but a friend said he was not getting them. I did a lot of searching and Copic was blamed for this in a few forums - so I removed it.
    After removing Copic I still could still not send pictures but now it said "Not Delivered".

    I have tried the following:
    1. Disable iMessage and Facetime (some forums claimed this may be linked)
    Followed by a reboot and reactivation of iMessage - no luck

    2. Tried same but used safe mode - no luck

    3. Removed most apps - still no luck

    Any ideas? I hate to think I may need to return to stock ...

    Wow - after hours I figured it out ...
    It was not my Jailbroken 4S it was my friends un-jailbroken 4 (with ios 5) that had the problem.
    The fix is:
    1. Turn off iMessage in phone not receiving messages.
    2. Reboot phone
    3. Turn on iMessage

    Nothing worse than spending a day trying to fix something that isn't broke.

    I done it a few times!

    it was happening to me earlier tonite. I was trying to send pics to my wifes (unjailbroken) iPhone 4.
    they wouldn't go.
    i removed copic and rebooted.
    i then reinstalled the legit copic and paid the buck 29.
    all is now working correctly

    Update.
    Copic is the culprit...
    The problem came back again and only went away again after I uninstalled copic.
    What threw me is it only affected some image recipiants and then only intermittantly.
    Hope copic gets a fix as I really like it!

    Okay my phone has been doing this for a couple of months and I forgot about it. I don't have Copic but I do have BiteSMS. I will try to remove that and see of that works.

    I removed BiteSMS and I still can't send MMS through iMessage. If anyone has any ideas it would be great. I'm getting frustrated.

    Well I don't get it. I have checked out everything and still cannot send MMS through iMessage to my wife. It says delivered but she never gets anything. I give up.

    Yes. She is on Verizon with an iPhone 4S (Jailbroken).

    Thanks for the link. My wife is under the impression that it is my phone and has nothing to do with hers. I have just accepted that if I need to send her a pic I will need to do it through a text message. Hopefully this issue is fixed with iOS 6.
