MMs require a data connection (even if you do not have data plan)  have you checked the apn setting, is that posssible on that phone?

Mms receipt is dependent on APN settings. There is also a setting in some message apps to enable and disable auto MMS message receipt.  Some general APN information

I tried the website and that was helpful for my smartphone  but the flip phone is a little more basic. I can set the APN but it only gives me a gateway and a port and set homepage as well as turn on GPRS service and network selection   I have inputted all the same information for the smartphone  but still not downloading any MMS

Hi there... the phone is not a smartphone.  My husband just can not get the sliding to answer the phone so had to get him a 3g basic flip phone.
