Default Can't receive picture texts after froyo

Hi my friend updated their Galaxy S Vibrant to Froyo and now I'm told they can't receive picture texts. It just sits there on downloading.

They do not have the dataplan but was able to receive pictures before with 2.1

Any idea what happened?

I had that problem with certain people on 2.1.. Try a different sms app like handcent.

When mine did it, it would eventually come through with some people and Iwould have 2or 3"downloading messages and then the picture would come through.. but some would never load. Haven't had that issue on custom roms though. Only on stock. Seems pretty drastic though to have to root your phone to receive such a basic service.

Toly dumb.. I am sure there is another solution, but as easy as it is to flash custom roms and as stable as they have gotten, you may as well give it a shot.

I've never loaded a rom on the Vibrant before, how long does the process take in minutes?
I did my droid in about 15
