    Hello. My Motorolla droid is not receiving picture messages. It used to. Not sure when this problem started occuring, but i know of at least 5 pic messages I haven't gotten this week. One was sent from t-mobile and several from different people on A T & T. I'm not sure if verizon to verizon pic messages work. I have sent out pic messages and they are working

    I use handcent for text. i recently switched to tag home, no idea if that can be related


    Any ideas?

    Looks like you are talking to yourself. I sometimes get pic texts from at&t phones that take a while to open. it's almost impossible to send a pic text MMS from my droid to another phone, esp at&t. way too annoying.
    i'm using handcent

    nah shouldnt have to do with the carriers at all, there might be some lag but they should open, all my messages work, if there is an issue with receiving or sending call customer care they can reset all ur messagin settings

    My droid works great sending,receiving and forwarding messages. you may want to unistall your message app and re-install.
