I tried searching for this problem, but only came up with one thread, which was not helpful.... For a while now, I don't know exactly how long, my phone stopped receiving pictures in text messages. I get a notification that a new text msg is in, but when I click on it, it just says "downloading". Once in a blue moon the pic will appear after about 20 minutes, but most of the time it never comes up. I am using Handcent, but I get the same result with the stock messaging program. The one thread I saw said that a hard reset had to be done. I really don't want to have to do that..... Anyone else?? This is a HUGE problem for me!! Thanks!
