    Yes, use Handcent SMS. It will re-size a pic if it's too big to send and allows you to save pics from your text messages. Creates a folder in you albums called "downloads" where it saves the pics from text messages. Very good program!

    I had the same issue with picture messages saying they were downloading, then never showing up. I was on the phone with VZW for about 40 minutes trying to figure out the problem. The tech had me factory reset the phone ... it didn't work and rendered my phone unable to receive SMS so I cancelled the phone on the account, then reactivated it about 10 minutes later. From then on it's worked just fine.

    FWIW, I'm using Handcent. Much better than the native messaging client.

    ok, so after spending an hour on the phone with verizon last night, they ended up doing a master reset and now everything works fine. Must have been a bug in the system or something. hope this doesnt happen again
