Subject:  New Multimedia Message

Message size:  30KB

Expires:  Shows current date and time       Downloading.

 

That's it.  Nothing comes thru.  Now what is this stupid phone doing.   I hate hate hate this phone.

Also make sure that your 3G connection is active instead of the wifi connection. For me, I have found that picture message will only download the attachment on a 3G data connection.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Try rebooting the device because it sounds like the data connection may be going dormant.   Reboot or try cycling Air Plane mode...
