    My wife has a stock Epic using Handcent for its messaging app. When she recieves a picture in a text message it wont download if the phone is connected to wi-fi. I disabled Handcent and tried the stock app and same issue. If I turn off wi-fi, the imagee downloads no problem via the stock messaging app or Handcent. If anyone has any suggestions I sure would appreciate it.

    There aren't any suggestions that u hadn't already figured out & answered urself; U can't get MMS with Wifi because MMS is data which needs 3g (or 4g) which is disabled when Wifi is enabled...

    I guess I dint think of it like that. I thought Wi-Fi was a data connection and would work the same. Thanks for the info.
