    What actually happens when you try to download them? Are you given any error message at all?

    You'll need mobile data on to be able to download MMS. If it is, check if your APN Settings are correct? (Settings -> Wireless & Networks -> Mobile Networks -> Access Point Names) Which provider are you with? Does what's listed there match what your network provider has given?

    Try the free app 'SaveMMS'.
    Sometimes this little app does a little wonder :)

    Try with one of the alternative SMS apps Go/Handcent etc and change the user agent.

    If Giff Gaff uses O2's network, I know they can have problems with receiving SMS. My other half has similar issues, no matter what I send her pic wise, the network compresses it to 25KB.
