Strange N96 problem

Ok strange problem here

Got the N96 on Vodafone unbranded it and updated with latest firmware all ok

Now when my mate sends me a picture it asks me to go onto the Vodafone website to view it... why?

In the MMS settings its set to Large

Now here is the really strange thing the same picture can be sent to my old phone and it comes through no problem at all so that would rule out Vodafone limiting the size of the picture/message or anything

Now when i put the sim card back into my N96 and he tries to send me the same picture to my N96 the same thing comes up again asks me to go to the website to view it

Now another strange thing is he took another picture but smaller file size sent them to my N96 and it came through without any problems what so ever..... so that now rules out my settings and Vodafone limiting the picture size. The only last thing i can think of is there must be some kind of setting within the N96 that puts a limit on the picture size

Please help donít know what else to try

I had a similar(ish) problem when I debranded, I'm on PAYG and couldn't send or receive any pictures or use WAP after debrand.I used the built in settings wizard but it didn't work so went to the Voda website and got the N95 8gb settings sent (no PAYG settings for N96) to the phone via text and everything works peachy
Might be worth a try you can always revert to setting you are using now
No limit to picture size either,
sent a picture to myself using the top camera settings


n96, problem, strange
