Straight up, you need a data plan to receive / send MMS. I don't know much about iPhones but my guess is you were using iMessage to send pictures, which will come in over Wi-Fi.

Mine did that too. It's cuz i had my Sprint phone flashed over to Cricket and when they do that they download an android messenger that you have to send and recieve pictures through. I accidently deleted mine and yeah you have to go back into the store and have them redownload it for you. Unfortunantly they won't give you the website to do it yourself and i have been able to find it online.

I have unlimited text and pics on my plan with kodoo. Ever since updating to 4.0.4 I get these mess. instead of pics. I almost never use data and it used to work perfect. 4.0.4 also won't allow me to disable background data which uses a lot of batt. cause it constantly searches for updates that I don't want. 4.0.4 sucks!
