Hello @koeka I am sorry to hear that you are having issues sending pics and gifs on your mobile device. Do you get the same message when sending to any destination or is it just a single instance?

Was there a fix for this? I'm on the phone now with customer support and they said they've never seen this before

@user_b955f9​ They basically told me there was nothing they could do 🤣so I switched back to Verizon and everything is working perfectly.

This is frustrating. Why haven't they figured this out yet with all these similar complaints?   I switched from Verizon to Xfinity and brought my own paid-off Note 9. Trying to use the Samsung messaging app for group texts gives me the "Invalid destination address" error. Same if I send a gif or picture. I CAN at least send a text message to a SINGLE person via the Samsung messaging app. I had to have someone in my group setup a new group and I'm using the Verizon messaging+ app to text with the group now, that's the only way I can do group texts.

OMG!  So glad to find this post -- I have been working with Xfinity "uber advanced" support for two weeks now.  Still no resolution.  After switching to Xfinity, I too lost the ability to text MMS, with the same error: "Message not sent:  invalid destination address".  Xfinity support so far seems to be completely blindsided by this.

@XfinityRobertA @XfinityMarcella I'm told this issue has been escalated to the "highest" engineering team.  They have been "working on it" for over a week.  This is REALLY harshing my mellow -- HALLLLLP

@user_79e2cf​ I switched back to Verizon within a week of trying out Xfinity. Their technical support is not designed for mobile troubleshooting, it was ridiculous hearing some of their basic suggestions and just how lost they are on any "advanced" problems like we had.  I was going to try and deal with it with work-arounds but the last straw was when I couldn't get my security code texts from banks and other sites that are still using the archaic SMS-only option for security codes to login.

Same issue here... So frustrating.  Plan to burn a few hrs tomorrow with support and then switch back to Verizon if it isn't resolved
