Sprint Hero MMS Question.
Just switched over from the tour a couple of weeks ago and I've been having some issues with receiving my mms messages. Some of them will work and then most of them will have a little download button and when I click it it attempts to download and then fails. Never had this issue with my tour, just wondering if there is a solution to this or this just gonna be how it is?
Thanks in advance for any help

As for a solution...im afraid its a temporary one at best. I had to do a hard reset of my phone (restored it to the way it was out of the box) and lost all my apps and had to resetup all my stuff! Its been working for me since the hard reset but ive been told from alot of people its only a temporary fix and will eventually start to mess up again. People suggest having the pics sent to your email or use the sprint picture messaging website to view them. None of these solutions are very good but they are all we have until a fix is released

I would go back and have it re-setup. I've heard that there could be a problem with that. Go to a Sprint store, not a joe-shmo store
I haven't ever had a problem receiving/sending MMS. I've used Handcent from day 1, and highly recommend it if you are going to be using the stock 1.5 ROM. It even resizes the pics you send down to less than 1Mb without issue (may have to hit resize twice for some reason). This will not be an issue with 2.1 (as I am running it now!) And it allows 2Mb which should be plenty for 5MP pictures taken on the phone.

This may sound like a dumb question but I'm thinking about switching back to sprint and was wondering with MMS on devices like the hero do you actually get the picture in the message or does it still give you a link to there web page that you have to open to view the pic?

I ended up going back to Blackberry....Android was cool and is a fun phone. But I dont get the lag, I get my messages, and just feel more secure with my blackberry. Just couldnt handle waiting 2 seconds for response time when I typed something or hit an icon.
