THE ABOVE WORKS! I swear they must have changed it, I never needed the proxy or port for the data, just the mms. Thank you.

Just tested this on the Koodo (Telus) Samsung SIIX and I get the same partial images loading. I can't see it being a DNS problem since I can bring up the site fine and the image starts loading, then stops. It only seems to be a problem with the images.

Opera Mini loads all the images just fine if that helps anybody.
Well this is wierd. Opera mini does work for imgur but not Opera (Full)/Dolphin/Stock/Chrome. I guess opera mini will be the reddit browser for now since im hesistant using proxies in my phone. thanks Vacillator!

Opera Mini is the only way to view imgur.

lol.. opera mini uses a proxy to compress images which are then delivered to your phone

that's why it works and all the other browsers don't...

Imgur doesn't seem to be working on Telus right now. Anyone else?
