I've had the active settings through from O2, and restored the default APN settings, both without success.
I do have the 'use packet data' option switched off, as I don't want to use the Internet when not in a wi-fi area (no net included on my contract) - could this be why the MMS isn't working? If so, that's a massive pain. And a bit daft.

There are Apps (like apndroid) which will attempt to keep MMS active while turning off other data.
I have to say, a smartphone without a data plan, is always going to be inconvenient.

It's my gf's phone - she likes to do web things when at home using wi-fi, but has no interest using it for that when out and about, so didn't get a data plan.
Never used data on her old phone to receive MMS, so can't really understand the need to have data switched on now for that purpose. Oh well, she'll have to live without. Seems like a massive step backwards, mind.
Ta for your help anyway...

What your girlfriend is forgetting is that a smartphone doesn't just use data when you are browsing the web or looking at facebook. It will be using it most of the time for always on applications.
Trying to use a smartphone like a 'dumb' phone will always be a pain.

Meantime you can go into the menu- settings- wireless & network settings- mobile networks- and tick on the use only 2G networks. That seems to work for me, but it slows down sending / receiving.
Keep shouting at O2 to release the update!
