Sending and receiving picture messages

Sending a picture message works just like sending a regular text message with Textfree!

1. If you're sending a new message, tap the new message icon in the upper right corner of your inbox


2. Your new message screen will have a search bar along the top where you can begin typing the name or number of your contact, if you begin typing, your contact's name will appear in a drop down list. Tap on their name to add them as the recipient 

3.From the message screen, tap the paper clip icon on the bottom left hand corner to choose a picture from your camera Library, take a photo, or send an emoticon.

*Make sure you have allowed Textfree access to your photos



4. If you tap the “Choose From Gallery” option, your photos will appear at the bottom of the screen. Tap the picture you want and it will appear above the text box. Once you have the picture that you want, add some text and send it to your friends. 


Your photo and message will now appear in the conversation thread with your contact!


If you're in Canada: at this time, picture messages cannot be received from contacts whose carrier is Rogers Communications.
