    I have a Moto Droid running the newest Bugless Beast v0.4 Froyo.

    I was previously having this problem on BB 1.1, but I had read in a few places that people were having trouble receiving MMS with Handcent, and I had uninstalled the default messenger app. So I figured I would upgrade my Bugless Beast ROM to the newest one, not use Handcent, and it would fix the problem. Except it seems that it hasn't fixed the problem. I'm not not receiving the message at all...no notification and no message in the thread.

    If it matters at all, the person sending me the test Picture Message is using a Verizon Blackberry Bold.

    I don't see a great deal of people having this issue. Since you are running Bugless Beast I'm moving your here for further assistance.

    Thank you. I thought it might not be BB specific but I suppose it makes sense to be here.

    I've managed to get a few with BB...after them being sent 3 or 4 times. But that was a few weeks ago, and haven't managed to get them at all since then.

    Well, lets keep it here for now and if you don't get any help pm me and I'll move you back. To be honest I don't know how much help you'll get on something like this.

    When I was new to the Forum I remember having a woman having the same issue. We started sending MMS back and forth to each other and every one of them came through so we couldn't fix whatever the issue was. Is it from the same person? If it is who's their carrier?

    Yeah, they're from the same person. I mentioned it in the OP, they're being sent from a Verizon Blackberry Bold. Let me ask someone else to send me one and see if it works.

    I had someone else send me a Picture message, also from a blackberry (not a bold) on verizon and it came through fine.

    This is using the standard Messaging app now, not Handcent

    See that's what I mean. Who know's who's at fault there? Could be something on the other persons side.

    It's odd though because the other person's picture messages go through fine to other people. That's why I assumed it was my problem.

    I thought it was just me but yea I've been having the same exact issue. I don't you any messaging programs straight up message program. Regular message work, pictures don't. They'll send but no receive.


    Ironically enough as I went to have a separate person deliberately try to send me a picture...ALL my texts are now gone.

    The stock Messaging app is responsible for sending and receiving MMS; Handcent uses it for MMS so you can not uninstall it if you want to use Handcent and still send/receive MMS.

    I've since started using Handcent with the stock Messager app still installed, and it works fine.

    I have read around that if u install the stock mms app you wont receive SMS or MMS at all. Maybe that is the reason of your problem.
    I dont use sms (only GV) so I haven't suffer that problem (BB0.4)

    I too have had this issue and found the problem to be related to the baseband update. After restoring the previous baseband, I could then send and receive MMS messages again using handcent and the stock app.

    So if you have uninstalled the original messaging app, where can I reinstall it. Since I made a backup after the uninstallation, thinking I wouldn't need it anymore.
