Everyone that is having a picture mail problem!  I have had this problem too!  However I for me I noticed it DOESNT work when you have your Wifi ON.  If you turn OFF your Wifi and connect to your Evo network (aka 3G) then the picture mail downloads with no problems.  Give this a try it worked for me!  Ever since I figured that out I never had a problem with my picture mail !!!  Good luck

That is true about the Wifi (albeit ridiculous that the phone can't switch by itself), but that has been known around here I think about as long as the phone has been out. For many of us, including me, the MMS problem does not come from having the Wifi on.

Hello all

Alright I have been reading alot of posts and i keep coming across people saying the sprint insurance is worthless. Also that they only recieve refurb phones as replacements. well i can tell u from my 8 years with sprint that there insurance is the best and cheapiest, if u dont have it u may be SOL. First off if u dont have it and something happens to your phone u may be charged a repair fee of upto $150 if it is not a known issue with the device u have. Also if u get 3 replacement phones back to back within 6 months u automaticly get a NEW phone.....and guess what it may not even be the same exact phone it could be an upgrade. Believe me i'm not making it up i have gotten this done for me twice. Read your insurance manual if u dont believe me. Also the only thing that it does not completely cover is if u lost, broke to piece or spilled water on your phone. And guess what thats only $50 for a regular phone and a $100 for smart/pda phone. Every other company replacements for those issues are atleats 200 to full price. so tell me its not worth it.

I never used wifi and rebooted the phone serveral times, I don't think wifi is the problem.

A sprint admin already said that the tech people are mistaken and that this issue will be takin care of in the 2.1 upgrade. There is no sense in them doing a big fix and then upgrading to 2.1 a few weeks later. All fix are going to be bundled with the 2.1 upgrade. The upgrade well be available in a few weeks

I bought my phone from best buy and got their insurance plan.  it's a couple dollars more, but it covers any damage at all with no deductible and it's unlimited as to how many times you can get a new phone.  that's how all phone companies insurance should work for the money the plans cost.

I don't know about that. I bought my Hero at BB too. The sales guy tried to sell me their insurance plan. But when asking what's not covered he said water damage or lost/stolen phones. Maybe my sales rep didn't know what he was talking about.

I went with the Sprint insurance because it DOES cover ANY damage including water and lost/stolen. I did this because over the years water damage has been my biggest issue. I've had one phone go into a pool, one into a glass of mountain dew and one fell out of my car into a puddle (none of these were mine, knock on wood, but they were others on my plan). Plus it was $2 a month less than BB. But there is a deductible.

This original post has run its course and this thread is moving to into off-topic discussions regarding device insurance. Here'a link to one of many posts from members discussing Sprint's insurance plan information.  http://community.sprint.com/baw/message/150078#150078
