    You have a camera on your phone? I know if the BB doesn't have a cam it can't receive MMS.

    Yea my phone never receives picture messages even over wifi. So just tell the person to send you an email with the picture attached.

    Reboot your phone and try to retrieve again. I have the same problem at times. I got a mms plan too, that may help.

    As soon as I typed that I was able to get an MMS message, I wonder if yours is low reception area?
