My wife's new Apollo is seemingly unable to send/receive photos via text
The messages take an age to receive and always tell her to visit the
virgin mobile website to view the message/photo. Sending a photo results
in it sitting on the phone for days 'sending' until deleted.
I've checked the settings on the VM website and also spoken to Virgin
service desk ( a delightful lass in Manilla) but to no avail.
The phone is wifi enabled to connect to wifi networks but the following
services are *switched off* to avoid data usage (it is used purely as a
use package data
