I can't believe I need to do a hard reset with my HTC hero to be able to receive video and audio via texts. I will go to a Sprint store before I try this at home.
A hard reset is not a big deal and I'm telling you from experience that it fixes the problem
Turn off the phone
While phone is off, hold the "home" and "back" buttons
Hit the "end call" button" while still holding the "home" and "back" buttons
Release the "home" and "back" buttons
A screen will appear prompting you how to reset the phone
You won't lose anything that saves to the SD card (ringtones, music, pictures) and you can easily back up your contacts through google and re-download apps from the market
If you selected Gmail contacts when you set up your phone, the Gmail website contains your contacts.. Hero syncs with your website Gmail and you have a backup of those contacts "in the cloud."
Is this what you are asking?

The hard reset worked for me too! I used an app to save my contacts, applications and music, etc... it was "mybackup" fromt eh marketplace and it was FREE! YOu jsut have to reinstall it after the hard set and it takes about a minute for it to restore everything. Thanks for you advice! Yay!
I was having the same problem. I did a hard reset and my pic messages are coming through just fine. Now I'm having a problem restoring my backup. But at least pic messages are working again.
