    When I first got my Bolt the day it came out, MMS sending and receiving worked fine. It worked well for a few weeks, but one day, I couldn't send any more or receive any MMS messages without my phone saying there is some generic network failure. I've tried removing my battery and sim card and reseting my phone, using 3G and not, using wi-fi, etc. Nothing works!

    I've seen others post about this, but removing the battery seems to have worked for them, but not in my case.

    Is there an update coming? Should I take it into Verizon?

    Is it because of the messaging App I am using? (Handcent)
    I don't see why it would be, as when I use the stock messaging application, it still fails to send and receive.

    Did you ever get this problem resolved? It seems as though I can send MMS but cannot receive them either. I've tried re-booting but no luck.

    I'd take the phone back to vzw... especially if you haven't rooted and customized it. they may make you data wipe tho to see if that works.

    What worked for me was clearing the cache and deleting old texts. In my case, one thread had over 1,000 messages! In most cases you really don't need over a couple hundred from one person, so setting your phone to delete older messages past that seems to help. PLUS if you receive facebook notifications, delete those every couple days because at least for me, those suckers really pile up. Give my solution a try and let me know how it goes.
