Maybe I don't understand how this works. As you know, I'm forwarding to another phone number (HeyWire). I receive the notification, text content, and filename... but how do I access the file? When the file has "dots" in the name (e.g., "2012-10-31 15.16.29.jpg" <-- that's an actual name from my phone's camera), the filename appears as a link in the forwarded message. However, the link only extends to ".29" with the ".jpg" appearing as plain text. Pressing the link doesn't do anything useful, as the only choices are "GrooVe IP" and "Phone" (i.e., it thinks it's a tel#). I tried renaming the file to something simple (freddy.jpg) and resent the MMS. This time the notification and body text arrived as before, but with "[Attachments: freddy.jpg]" appended (with no hyperlink). Is this a bug, or I just don't know how to access the picture?
