I have 4 phones on a family plan, for over a year now. Just today, none of the phones can send MMS texts. A return message from "#" will say "Message not found". I sent an MMS to someone from another carrier -- same thing. That person then sent me an MMS, and I received it as normal.
SMS works both ways, MMS can be received, but can't sent MMS. Checking our data usage from the app shows only my phone at 2.8GB usage with the rest <1GB, and we have "unlimited" on each line.
Anyone else having an issue with MMS today?
Solved! Jump to Solution.
I have same problem. What has temporarily helped is to disable WiFi and reboot iPhone. Guessing this clears the DNS cache. On reboot with WiFi off MMS pictures usually send. In a day or do its back to usual, MMS fails after a long attempt.
I am having trouble sending to non-Cricket accounts. Sounds as if you are having trouble within phones on your Cricket account? I can’t send MMS but Apple’s iMessage protocol via iCloud works perfectly.

Top Reasons to Choose Cricket
How to Pick a Cell Phone Service
1. Review your most recent cell phone bill
Look for opportunities to save. In particular, take note of:
How much you're paying per line - Do you have a multi-line cell phone plan? What kind of discount are you getting? Could you save more by switching? Cricket's family and group plan offers a discount for each extra line up to the fifth line - so you could get 5 lines with 2 GB of high-speed data each for as little as $130/mo - as long as all 5 lines are on the $40/mo plan. Discounts apply to lines 2-5.
How much data you use - Do you burn through all of your high-speed data too soon? Do you always have lots of data to spare? Ideally, you don't want to get too little or too much. Cricket has a variety of cell phone plans to fit any lifestyle, so you can choose a cell phone plan that's just right.
