    BiteSMS(then uninstalled it) but I don't believe it's related because my girlfriend has the same problem and has never had biteSMS installed

    Is that all you installed? Nothing else?

    If that's the case, is the problem consistent with everyone you receive MMS from? Does it occur in both iMessage and standard SMS?

    What did you jailbreak your phone(s) with? What firmware are you on?

    Well that's odd then. I have the same setup and mine works fine. It's weird that both of your devices are doing that. Are you on official carrier?

    Yeah...I think I'm pretty much stumped. Has this always been the case? Or did it just start happening? If it has always been the case, it might've been something that went wrong with the jb process or it could've been the firmware used...

    I feel like it's something really simple and I'm overseeing it lol.

    I do have photoalbums+ installed but my iPhone has been JB on 5.0.1 ever since the untethered was released by the dev-team with and photoalbums+ has been installed for months too and this problem just started a few weeks ago

    There is, apparently a new beta of PhotoAlbum+ not sure if it fixes the issue (the problem is with PhotoAlbum+ but its really not a good idea to uninstall it or you won't be able to charge your device from your computer).

    That App does seem to have more than its fair share of problems....
