Default Can't receive mms messages

My wife's got an S3 on Orange and she can't receive mms messages - no problem sending them though.
We've been on to Orange helpline and they talked us through a right load of stuff, but to no avail. In the end they said the only option left is to return it to factory settings - something I'm really trying to avoid.
Any ideas?

Under APNs there are 4 options:

Orange internet
Orange Broadband
Orange MMS
Orange MMS

The one selected is Orange internet.

Is this correct?

I had a similar problem when I first got mine. Was told to mms my own number. Did so, and it came right.
