    For some reason when I want to download attachments (usually jpegs) that someone has sent me via text message, I have to turn off my wifi and and use either 3g or 4g. Why would they not load via wifi??

    I don't have an answer for your specific issue but I was wondering what text messaging application are you using? Because I too had a similar problem at first with the native texting app on the EVO until I started using GoSMS. After that I was noticing it would say I had a MMS (I'd receive the notification sound and icon but the picture wouldn't appear for some 15-30secs depending on the size of the photo but even with wifi enabled it still appeared. Have you tried waiting a few minutes after you get the notification of a new MMS before switching to 3g?
