Wiping the MMSC,MMS proxy & MMS port APN fields *might* help, should stop it fetching any MMS body. No guarantees though and I'd bet on there being plenty of other ways to trigger stagefright badness.

There's simply no excuse for carriers and device manufactures not being able to quickly push a dll update and nailing this. Wont happen without heavy handed regulation - or at least the threat of huge fines.
