you can't.  there is no guarantee by your provider that you can read MMS
messages on any given phone.  unless you bought a phone that indicates
it can do MMS and you receive one, great.  if you have a black and white
dinosaur phone that doesn't do graphics and you get an MMS, you're just
plain out of luck if your provider doesn't also send you a URL to read
it from your PC.
