I am having the same problem but I cannot find a solution (I will continue to look).
I am also using an iPhone 4 on 5.0.1. There were a few updates for cydia apps I use (Photoalbums+ and Springtomize), perhaps there was a problem with one of these? Do you use those cydia apps?
Edit: I decided to remove the cydia apps 1 at a time to see if there was a problem with one of them and it turns out that the photoalbums+ was the one causing the issue, I will send an email to the developer now. I will be reinstalling it as it's a useful application and I can always save the pictures to view them, but lets hope they can get a fix up quick.
I hope this helps anyone else with the same problem =)

I am so happy I found this thread. This issue has had me going mad for about 2 weeks now. I too removed the PhotoAlbums+ app to regain full MMS functionality. I also emailed the developer. Hopefully we see a resolution soon.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who was flippin out over this haha. I hadn't changed anything except updating PhotoAlbums+ to 126.96.36.199, and that's when my problem started. PhotoAlbums and the MMS pics had been working flawlessly up to that point! Well, PhotoAlbums+ still works flawlessly, but yeah, I can't view my MMS pics w/o saving them now.
Go to Cydia -> Manage -> PhotoAlbums+, then scroll down to "Recent Updates." It will take you to the developers forum. I clicked on "Photoalbums+ 188.8.131.52 with iPhone 4" (not exact words) and in there, a few of the testers had the same problem.
On Mar. 24, the Admin was able to reproduce as well as fix the MMS/photo viewer issue and said that the fix will be released in the next beta version. Unknown when the next actual update will come thru Cydia.
