    Is anyone have issues downloading any MMS? I keep getting a failed download message "Transient failure". In both the default messaging app and Handcent.

    I have the same problem and can't seem to find a fix. It only happens to some people. I heard if you update your profile it might help. In my case it did not. Just a note, I use chomp sms

    Are you guys not getting mms at all or just getting the error message?

    when i had 2.1 i got an error message "network error" i believe it was, with 2.2 i dont get an error message i try to download it and it will have no progress then after about 5-10 mins it will go back to showing an option to download the picture again. i tried updating my profile but after two hours of waiting for it to connect to the network i canceled it.

    Ok so it seems that some people are having luck with the updated profile and some are not. I have seen other sites listing the problem but its not widespread. Mine still gives errors sometimes but nothing stops the mms coming through. this has to he a 2.2 thing because I dont remember having this problem with 2.1 hopefully a patch will come out soon. These are not the only problems with the new update.

    I had this in 2.1 but it automagically cured itself after a week - same symptom, hit download, wait, wait, wait, then download button appears again.

    I just thought my phone didn't do MMS - so for whatever reason, I can't guarantee this isn't a 2.2 thing, but there's some anecdotal evidence that it might be elsewhere.

    Anyone try calling Sprint to see if this is on their side?

    Same exact problem here... most annoying part is the error message repeatedly comes up in the notifications. updating profile did not fix for me. it was hard enough to even update the profile - most times it would take forever to load then i'd have to cancel out

    I get a stream of error messages when I reboot my phone. I can't believe there has not been a fix for all the issues in Froyo 2.2.

    There does not seem to be many people out there with the same problem or would have a lot more posts about EVO users not receiving their mms messages.

    I fixed my problem the other day by switching from chomp to handcent. Thats made the errors go away and my mms works great again. Still cant figure out what is causing it. Also I noticed with the stock messaging it didn't give errors either

    I'm using the stock 2.2 for text. Haven't tried anything else.

    I'm assuming the answer to this question is no but better safe than sorry; will update profile have any negative or ill effect on rooted phones?

    My mms error messages are significantly increasing. It is now giving me multiple error messages throughout the day. Still cannot find a resolution for this.
     
  23. Has everyone checked to make sure their Sprint Picturemail is not full as this site suggests?

    I'm having the same problem, but I don't want to delete all my memories on there (I found pics dating to 2003!) just yet lol

    Update us and let us know if it works.

    I spent an hour clearing out. But it did not work for me. Thanks for the suggestion.
