Scroll down until the link is highlighted, press Options, Use Highlight Object, Link. Then it should open in your phones browser.

Visit a Store or call the Call Centre. They will confirm settings on device, and troubleshoot. Typically this is common where a LightSurf profile reset will solve the issue were you keep getting links instead of an actual in message MMS.

Another thing that can fix this - if you've never sent a picture message from your phone before, try sending one first and it usually "enables" receiving as well. Not retroactive though.
