    I am having issues receiving MMS messages. On both Handcent and the Stock Messaging app, it shows a MMS message ready to be downloaded, but it does not let me download the message. Data is enabled, and I am rooted so I'm not sure if that is an issue or not. Would really like to avoid having to do a factory reset. Any advice?

    Turn off wifi and it should work. Don't know why, but when I have issues not downloading this works for me

    I wish it were as simple as that...Wifi is already off, still doesn't work. :(

    Try turning off Wifi AND Data....and then reboot but this time leave the Wifi off and only turn on the Data (I.E. try downloading via Data without ever having turned on the WiFi). I have found that the Bionic seems to like Data more than WiFi and a Bionic tech and I tried it this way and it worked. Not optimum but it worked in our case.

    You'd be best served to call tech support with this one.

    Make sure youre on a different phone

    If you call Verizon don't tell them your rooted and make sure your setup is as close to stock as possible.
