:smileyhappy: Just wanted to share with the community that my problem with inability to download photos sent with text messages has been solved.

I called Verizon yesterday and spoke to a very pleasant person who sent me a text with a photo that I WAS able to download. She then told me if your phone number is preceeded by a 1 in the sender's contact list you will not  be able to download it. And also that you have to have 3G turned on, WiFi off.

I asked two of my senders to send a new text with photo and I was able to download both. So it appears to be working. Hope this is helpful to all of you who have experienced the same problem.

Has it ever worked or did it just stop working? If so check your settings in messaging. Look at the multimedia message limit. Mine was set to 20 as a default.

Just got my phone replaced because the signal kept going from full to nothing every 20 seconds. Don't know if maybe your problem is hardware related or not. Have you tried a factory reset?

When you receive picture message  is it every picture message or picture message sent from same person? Is it a picture that is downloaded from web etc. which maybe copyrighted and will not download to phone?

I am having the same problem with messages sent by 2 different senders. Get the message then it says "downloading" but nothing happens. Seems this began after updating. Help please.

I'm having the same problem. It was fine before updating to 2.2, but now it won't download any picture or video messages on the stock text messaging app. I had to download the chompSMS app to get it to work.

In addition to not being able to download pics with messaging, I now am unable to get email to download. It shows an email in the annunciator line and a red numeral on the email icon but when clicked on just get message"downloading" and it goes round and round.

My husband has an identical phone, both purchased at the same time which is working fine. He has not downloaded the recent update.

There are also 2 new icons on my annunciator line that I am unable to find a description for in my manual. Anyone else noticed that?
