    Problems receiving MMS

    Am getting so frustrated. I realise I need to have data on in order to send / receive MMS but I normally choose not to leave it on all the time (in effort to save the battery!) and to be honest I do not need it permanently on. It appears that if someone sends me an MMS and my data is off then it never downloads but what puzzles me is WHY when I turn data on the message still never downloads?? Checking the 'downloading' message details says it will expire in a week so it must be stuck somewhere. Is there something I can do to retrieve it? I can't expect people to tell me before they send me picture messages so that I can quickly put my data on before they hit send!

    I have Samsung SG2 and use the stock messaging (so far). I have altered my o2 settings thinking that was to blame but think not.

    Can anyone please help?
