Hi whenever a friend sends me a MMS it says 'retreiving' then fails. Is there a setting to activate? I'm with vodafone uk on an 8300. Note it does work when I SEND an mms though.

Hope u can help

I've heard of cases with T-Mobile in which users had to "self-activate" MMS by sending themselves 2 or 3 MMS messages. Then the service worked perfectly. Worth a try at least!

Hey flash - I have a BB 8300 on TMO. I have installed the O2 OS that everyone else is having good luck with and my MMS is working good. The first message my sister sent me failed, but every time after that it has worked. Do you have the service book "MMS Config [WAP]"? Maybe that's missing and why you can't send/receive?

I have a total of 11 service books.

Mwryan, welcome to the forums.

You'll need service books for MMS. On FIDO, I doubt you'll get them unless you have the BlackberryConnect plan.
