All messaging packages include MMS capabilities. The only exception would indeed, be a data block. Even phones that do not have a messaging package can receive MMS (without a data block).

 

To the original poster, I had the same issue on my LG Neon. Try retrieving the file again. If it does not successfully download, keep trying. I know that I had tried a few numerous times and could not get it to retrieve. I had to end up deleting the message.
