    Anyone else not able to receive mms pics? They will not download in handcent and the regular messenger. If I click them it just stays in the downloading state. I receive texts fine.

    I have ALWAYS had this problem. What fixed it? Go into the MMS Settings, and uncheck the box that says "Auto-retrieve MMS." Now you will get a download button everytime someone sends you an MMS, and it works.

    Btw, in the future, if you would have Googled this, you would have seen other people talking about the problem, and this was one of the solutions listed.

    They are unchecked in both handcent and standard messenger. I get the button, but when I click download it just says downloading and never actually downloads.

    Is your 3G on? The messaging app requires 3G on and active.

    I've had this issue in the past. What I had to do was uninstall Handcent, and stock messaging, then reinstall stock, then handcent.

    Are you on 5.2 because this was a known problem with 5.1 or 5.0 can't remember. If you have "Auto-retrieve MMS." checked and see what happens. I have this problem but not very often, maybe 1 out of 50 MMs sent to me.

    I think it's a Handcent issue. I was having the same problem with Handcent and stock messaging not receiving texts with or without auto download selected. I just uninstalled Handcent and I started receiving pic messages again.

    this happens to me a lot after having roms installed for a while. just apply 5.2 again and it will work fine.

    Make sure you dont have standard messaging removed. Your phone will not recieve pics without this

    I had a similiar problem on d2. The only fix was to retrieve them while only on 3g. Not wifi. Try it out. Always worked for me.
