    Ever since the last HTC update, I cannot open media messages. I get the message, "Get media content now (30KB)", click it, and it doesn't open. I can send MMS, but not open. Incredibly annoying...any ideas?

    Might be carrier related. That happened to me a few months back on Verizon. But it went away. What carrier are you on?

    Make sure your data is completely on. No edge or WiFi, but 3g and up. Otherwise it won't work.

    Toggle airplane mode or turn the cellular off, then on again. Unfortunately the data may be lost already. Sometimes if you don't retrieve it soon, you will lose it. But after doing the airplane toggle and turning cellular off and on, wait a few minutes and send a photo to yourself to see if it works now.

    I tried just restarting the phone earlier, and that didn't work. Taking your airplane mode advice, I sent one to myself and had my girlfriend test-send me one as well...it worked! Thanks so much. Any idea why this happens?

    Also, I was able to open pictures from yesterday.

    Oh good! I don't know why this happens, the only thing I could think of is that somehow when the signal goes offline, turning airplane mode on/off helps kick it back into gear, because you are turning off all connections and turning them back on. Its like flipping a breaker switch off then on to help restore electricity. :)

    I sometimes get this for some reason, and sometimes it works. I do have mms on. Been having this from my Dvp to my 920 on gdr3.
