I am having the same problems. A friend sent pics and it says: Message size:xxkb Downloading. Can some one advise how to fix this please. This is on the Samsung Strat.
Is your cellular data connection turned on? Picture messages won't transfer over a wifi network.
We need to get your pictures working! Do you have the data connection turned off? Do you have MMS turned on? You can check by going to: Settings>Messages>MMS Messaging. Let us know!
