    I have an iPhone 3G updated to 3.0 and has been for quite some time now. I could receive picture messages just fine until about a month or two ago. I believe i stopped receiving them after TMobile went down that one day.

    I can still send them fine, but when I get a message it says
    "The media content was not included due to a picture resolution or message size restriction"

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I'm also having this issue. I just placed our iPhone's on TMobile and we get that same message when someone sends a picture. We can receive them when sent from an iPhone but not from another phone. Anyone have a solution or suggestion??

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Try installing the legacy mms package thru cydia.

    I had this problem too, along with many Tmo users...
    This is the fix that worked for me:

    Open Cydia and search for "Legacy" and install the first TMobile one.
    Then reset network settings (Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset Network Settings).

    I rebooted at this point...I've heard of people just skipping a reboot.

    Go into Cellular Data Network (Settings -> General -> Network -> Cell. Data Network). Enter the following.

    Cellular Data:

    MMS Proxy:

    Optional, but I set MMS Max Message Size to 240000000...found it on a site.

    Press back until you return to Settings. Return home. Reboot. Test with an MMS message to yourself.

    This is what worked for me, hope it works for you :D

    Thanks. I installed the Cydia software. Then added the 8080 to my proxy I get pics.

    Info.... I still have my Cellular Data APN set as while the tmobile tech support had me set only MMS APN to Will changing the Cell Data APN benefit me?
