Can't receive pictures through text

Hi, I was curious if anyone could help me with this problem. Any time someone sends me a picture, it won't go through. I have tried in both chomp and my default setting, and it won't work.

All it does is keep ringing as if I have a new text. But when I click on it, nothing comes through. So then, I close it/delete the conversation and then it starts ringing again. Rinse and repeat.

Thanks

On top of the screen, there should be an icon (a letter with up and down arrows). Anyway, goto Setting>Wireless & networks>Mobile network, make sure Data traffic is ticked.

Ok. Did you see that icon on top of the screen?

On the Mobile network settings screen, click Access Point Names to check whether it is selected.

No I don't see the icon on top...

When I click on Access Point Names, it comes up with:

"ATT

Check the network settings                            Settings-- wireless & networks --  mobile networks -- Apn. But before you do that.   Who is your network operator?

Hmmmm .... why don't you download the settings for Internet and MMS again?

Goto Settings>Sony Ericsson, click Settings download. This should work.
