This will never become the MMS problem thread because it becomes tiresome and boring to read after the 2nd thread..
All phones develop software issues, my N95 1 day decided to randomly stop me sending SMS's due to a non existant storage issue. It required me to Hard Reset my phone!! Prking is correct, if you have problems it is always worth removing SIM, sending settings, hard resetting phone and so on, then pin all the blame on O2. My Sony Ericsson X1 had the same issue, that was because for some reason the MMS settings had 1 letter wrong which I did not remember going into and changing.
Also as for O2 announcing problems getting through etc, there is a big old message that you cannot miss on the o2.co.uk homepage stating due to the weather they are having problems. Big obvious message on the homepage, how much more in your face do you need?? Also, big snowy day and service problems, doesn't take too much working out..
