Could possibly missing BlackBerry Attachment Service. Have installed/uninstalled the OS or anything of that nature?

Thumbs down

i get this problem all them time especially if its an MMS from a different carrier then yours and it takes forever to actually retrieve the msg.. my friend sent me a MMS message (Cingular User) and i received it 6hrs later they sent it (TMO uSer). my friends get annoyed when i have to request them to resend the MMS because then one i obtain is blank!

Is she attaching the files in the email or doing an inline picture? You won't be able to see the inline picture.

not sure about tmo, but verizon disables mms receive when you activate a blackberry data plan (so all you end up with is a message telling you that you've got a message)...

your wife should be able to send that same pix message to your BB's email address and you'll get it just fine...

I found that out when I sent both inline and attached e-mails to my e-mail. Attached ones work, but now the issue seems to just be MMS messages, which used to download, but now after I updated to 4.1.0.346, the MMS don't work anymore.

Has she possiably changed file types? i.e. Is she was sending JPGs and now they are PNGs or something else that BB does not know how to display.
