OK so after about 14 months of this problem coming up randomly I think I have figured out a fix. So first here is what happens, For those of us that have decided that Verizon data plan is too expensive and figured whats the point when you have WIFI, and either had a data block put on our lines or erased the #777 or something similar, When you get a MMS message ( a pic) your phone wont go into sleep mode until it has retrieved the pic, The problem is it wont ever retrieve the pic. So here is what i have found. Go to mms messages screen, click menu, then MMS options, MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS SET TO OFF. So far this has fixed it for me, From now on when you get a pic message , only text comes through just delete it and empty deleted items.

Now if i could only fix the sync problems.
