Alright I have been crawling the forums looking for a solution to this problem. Here is the story. When i receive and MMS (pic for example) the download button pops up but then eventually says that it failed to download. I will not accept that you have to have data service for pic messages. I had a blackberry 8900 before the G1 and could send and receive MMS all day long. Not to mention ever other previous phone I have had with tmobile. If you have the unlimited text plan (as I do) it includes both pic/sms. I went into tmobile store the other for help they had no idea what was wrong. They were amazed my g1 even works without an internet plan.. shows how much some people know..anyway some has to have the answers....so speak up if you can help Much appreciated.
