    I switched from an android phone to an iPhone on the same network. I had always sent photos via text. My photos on the iPhone fail to send via text. How do I send a photo to some one via text on my iPhone ?

    What app are you sending the texts from? If it is Apple's iMessage app, there shouldn't be an issue...Maybe it could be due to reception too.

    Does the iMessage app work with other systems or just other iPhones ?

    If it's a non iPhone, it will be sent as SMS. But you must enable that in Settings>Messages >Toggle on "Send as SMS".

    Ledsteplin, that option is only for iMessages which can't be send right away because of no internet connection on your iDevice.
    If you choose a non-iDevice it will always send as a regular text, as far as I know

    For it to work regardless all the time, it has to be on. You never know. They don't know that. So if they get in that situation, it will be on.
    However, if they don't have unlimited text with their carrier it could cost a little.

    Ooh! So it would explain why I could not text people who switched from  to R2D2! It kept trying to send them as iMessages.

    But I had to delete the contacts and re-add them.

    Yes that works too. Every time you add a new contact, your phone checks if it's an iMessage and FaceTime registered number. By deleting and renewing you forced your phone to recheck that number
