How to disable MMS auto-fetching on a Motorola Droid

With the recent Stagefright vulnerability scare, many smart phone users are heeding the advice of experts and disabling the auto-fetching feature of their text messaging apps.  If you have a Motorola Droid, below are instructions for how to disable the MMS auto-fetching on the Droid.

- Tap the Messaging icon on your Droid's home screen.  (If you don't see the Messaging app, tap the Apps icon at the bottom of the screen -- a group of 4x4 small squares -- and select Messaging from the list of apps.)

- Scroll down until you see Auto-retrieve, and tap it to uncheck it.  (If it's already unchecked, then auto-fetching has already been turned off.)
