    I'm using Handcent for my SMS and MMS handling. For some reason, I can't download MMS pictures when I'm connected to WiFi; only when on 3G/4G.

    Is there a setting on the phone somewhere (other than in Handcent) that handles this?

    MMS are designed to ONLY work on 3G/ 4G. Will never work on WiFI.

    What has me confused is that I'm certain that on my Droid X, I received MMS when on WiFi, but on the SGS3 it's not working. Very strange...

    Is it possible I was receiving pictures via SMS???

    Picture messages are always converted to MMS for sending. The Data network does have to be on when sending MMS. That is just the way the Carriers have it work.
