    I'm not sure if this is an all-Sprint thing or specific to the Shift. When I recieve pic messages, I have to 'download' them. It's irritating. Half the time they don't download, because I get a crappy signal in my apartment. Even when I have decent bars I am constantly hitting that stupid button only to have it refresh the text and reappear, no image. (Sometimes the button takes a minute to load and I get a SPRINT PCS link.) Is there an app or setting that will automatically download them upon arrival? Why do I have a smart phone if I have to tell everyone to send things to my email?

    ALSO since mentioning my crappy signal reminded me...I hate that I don't have a roaming only option. Doubtful but maybe you guys can help. Is there a way to force it somehow? The phone constantly cycles, which is fine most of the time, but when I do get a good roaming signal and am trying to make a call, it switches back to any barely there Sprint signal it detects then loses it again right away. So my dialing drops before it gets connected and I get that annoying "network unavailable" error.

    Guessing I'm stuck with these issues because of proprietary BS, but thought it was worth asking.

    Thanks guys! :)

    (P.S. I'm not rooted and I'm deathly afraid I'd brick it to death if I tried.)
