Answer by Lana
My Epic is doing the same thing. Since we are both having the same problem with different phones, It’s the network. Not sure if Sprint is open today, but hopefully they’ll be aware of the problem soon and fix it.

What do you think? Answer below!

    It must be Sprint, but this is the first time I’ve seen this error and this is the only result I get with it.
    I’m sure they’re already aware and trying to fix it as I type this!
    Just be patient, and send via -shivers- e-mail.
    Samsung Epic 4G on Sprint.

    Mine is doing the same thing. Galaxy S on Sprint as well.

    Just got this from chatting with Spirit

    We have a picture mail outage in the area you are inquiring about. Although there is no estimated repair time available, we are working diligently to correct the issue.

    Please be assured that it will be done as soon as possible we can fix it since the fixed agents are working on it and we already escalated the issue.

    I’m in FLA. I have an Epic 4G as well.

    I am having the same problem with MMS, 502 error Epic 4G.
    It seems to work after a reboot, but it only downloads one message before it errors out again.
    But it is working fine on my other phone which is an Evo.
    I was nervous that I messed up my Epic because I just rerooted it yesterday after the froyo update.

    Ma Samsung transform is doing the same exact thing.

    I think it must be a nation wide thing. Someone said that it was happening in Fl, well I am in OK and I also get the same message when I am tryin to get a picture. I am glad to know it isn’t just my phone

  7. Tigg Duhhh says:

    hmm im in florida and its been happening to me for the past 2 days. i got one picture message to work earlier. and i dont know how. but i am having the same problem as the rest of you. so its probably just a network problem.

  8. Steven says:

    Also in OK, and having the same error. Don’t worry though, Sprint will get it fixed ASAP.

  9. n.k.t.20 says:

    Same here. I’m in Missouri.

  10. Steve says:

    Mine in Atlanta, GA keeps saying the same thing… Got one picture thru, but still nothing! Im glad i checked on here! I thought it was my phone! Hopefully they will fix this soon!!

    I live in Michigan and having the same problem.

  13. Lily says:

    Ugh, this is frustrating, trying to send a few pictures today, and getting the same error. I’m in Texas, guess it really is a nationwide thing. Oh, and I have Epic 4G also.

  14. red_syn says:

    Problems here in WI too. Glad I found this thread. Epic 4G.

  15. PianoPlayer says:

    Same thing was happening to me and I have an Epic 4g. It still worked though recently after I received the error message.
    I think it is sprint. I sent it to someone with at&t and it worked fine.

  16. semper_fi_04 says:

    Here In California also. I called them earlier today and said they were working on it but guess its taking them a little longer than what they expected cause im still having the issue
