    Is your mobile data on if not that will cause it not to receive pic messages. Also are you on stock or custom ROM?

    Bingo! Funny how when you freeze the stock sms app everything seems to be fine except the pictures. It took me quite a while to figure that out the first time around.

    I have Handcent installed and stopped getting picture messages recently too. I went to start my stock text message app and can't find it. I didn't delete it, just stopped it and set handcent for my default app. Where on Earth did this thing go? I'm stock with no root. Basic Bionic....
    BTW, the last time I realized I wasn't getting picture texts, Verizon had me to a factory reset. I REALLY don't want to do that again... Help???​

    Go to settings, applications, all, scroll down to toward the bottom. That's where all the disabled apps go
