To be honest, I don't think you can use Wifi to download an MMS, someone correct me if I am wrong, I have never had this work on any phone I have had Wifi on, and this is the 3rd. I always had to use my Data package, which includes 20 Picture messages per month.

I know this is annoying m8, but I think there is nothing you can do about it. In my view, you should be able to get your mms through wifi.

Does it really matter? You don't pay for the MMS you receive from other people. You only pay for the ones you send.

Of course it is. MMS is a cell network service, so any attachments to an MMS can only be downloaded via the network.

That's correct. It's always been that way. This cannot be the first MMS equipped phone you've owned, so it should come as no surprise.

As I said in my previous post, it has always been thus.

Why are you so surprised now!

Oh jaliy!

MMS has been on most phones for the past 7 years at least, maybe longer.

My old Nokia 6230 could handle MMS in 2004. See here:-
