    I apologize if this has been answered before, but I couldn't find a thread for this question. I have the iPhone 5C and cannot send or receive pictures while on a call. While on a conference call with 2 other people (both have Android phones) today, they were sending pictures of Graphs back and forth and trying to send them to me as well, but I couldn't send or receive anything. When I tried to send a picture, I got a "Messaged Failed" alert. When I ended my call, all of the pictures that my clients had sent me (while on the call) came through to my text messages all at once. After I was off of the call, I could again send pictures as usual through my text messages.

    This is my first time going with an Apple phone of any kind. Is this a settings issue?

    Thank you very much in advance for any help with this.

    What carrier are you with? Unless AT&T where you can send and receive voice and data at the same time unless you are on Verizon - You have to be on WIFI to acomplish this.

    I'm assuming you are using either Verizon or Sprint. In that case you cannot talk and do other sending data at the same time type of things. On ATT or Tmobile you can.

    Welcome to iMore, Anna!! The advice given is correct. This feature depends on the carrier you're with.

    No apology needed Anna, The advice I gave you is solid and now that you know, At least you can expect this and adjust for it. Maybe during these calls you can ask them to email the info you needs in advance and you will have it before the call or meeting. If you have access to an Airprint Printer, You can print it out and even have it right in front of you and the 5C IOS supports this. Welcome and good luck.

    My guess is your on Verizon or a carrier that does not support this and a phone that does not support it.

    It is going to be the carrier as long as we are talking USA and we are. As I already stated AT&T yes, It supports data and voice at the same time vs Verizon that does not unless you are on WIFI with VZW and that it does. It really is that simple.
