I have received several MMS messages since I got my Play, and none of them come to me in color. It is always a weird grainy grayscale picture. I can send pics fine in color though. All pics I receive through the stock messaging app and handcent are in .WBMP format?? EDIT: I got my friend to change their handcent settings for MMS to send 300KB instead of 1MB and that fixed the problem. For some reason at the 1MB setting Verizon converts the pic to grayscale .wbmp format. Weird problem since even on dumbphones the 1MB mms setting never messed anything up, and they received the messages in color. I wonder if this is something that can be fixed in the 2.3.3 update?
