End of the world, no.  Important to Nextel and any of their clients who
receive MMS messages?  Probably.

Any reasonable way to clear the report on a Saturday, other than here?

Nuh uh.

I would expect that anyone with a phone stupider than a BB wouldn't
have gotten a reasonable error message -- indeed, it took me three
passes to figure it out.  (For those playing along at home: MMS
messages are sent as a specially formatted SMS -- or something very
close to that -- containing a URL for the actual message body; this is
why the phone might be retrieving across an SSL cert.)
