    So I updated to the latest version of iOS on my iPhone 4S. Now I can use iMessage with no problem. All my text to my wife goes as iMessage. If I try sending a picture, it either fails or goes as text message. Has anyone else experienced this or have a solution?

    Have you tried rebooting your device and/or resetting your network settings?

    Yes. I tried both of those. Also tried turning iMessage off and on again.

    Okay, then go to Settings-Messages and make sure that "MMS Messaging" is turned on.

    You might want to call Sprint and see if they can check your network from their end.

    There is an issue with iOS 6.1.3 which has broken photo iMessaging.
    Please see this article for further information: iOS 6.1.3 Affects iMessage Photo Sharing, Users Report - Softpedia

    At this stage there is no fix available and we are all waiting on Apple.

    Just curious if it matters how the message is being sent from. iCloud, Number, or another email address. Just a thought since this issue seems so sporadic....

    Pretty strange. It just started working on its own.

    Here's how I fixed mine. Turn off iMesage. Power off the phone for about 1 minute. Power back on, turn on iMessage.

    Same thing as doing a reset....Disconnects and reconnects. It's going to happen now and then. I have not had this issue at all
