    Hi all,
    I was unable to receive MMS messages since upgrading to 2.1.
    I spoke to voda and now have the fix for anyone having problems.
    It may work on other networks, it may not, but it definitely sorted it for me on vodafone.

    Anyway, here goes:

    Click on settings.
    Click on Wireless & Networks.
    Click on Mobile Networks.
    Click on Access Point Names.
    Click the Menu Button, (Left hand silver button at bottom of phone).
    Click Reset To Default.

    Once you have done the above, turn off your phone, remove your battery and sim card, and wait at least 10 seconds and then replace your sim card and battery.
    Turn your phone back on and walaaaaa, job done, you can now receive MMS texts again.

    But do note, any previously received MMS texts will still be un-openable(not sure if its a real word but hey ho), so you will need to ask the sender to resend.

    Not sure if this is worthy of a sticky, but knowing a lot of people are on vodafone and having the same problem, it would be a huge help to them.

    Anyway, good luck all, and happy MMS....ing :)

    Chris

    Well then i would try the above to be honest, it resets your sms settings, so should work for that too.

    Worth a try at the very least.
