    Default Re: Unable to download the attachement file

    Welcome to Android Central! That system message makes it sound like you're dealing the the texting app rather than email. Which one is it?

    If you're on your Messaging app, make sure you have mobile data (3G/4G) on, since I'm not sure attachments can be downloaded over voice signal or wi-fi. This also applies to sending photos via Messaging, as well as sending texts to groups.

    If you're on email, which email app are you using? The stock Email app, or Gmail, or some other? Make sure you're connected to the web, either via wi-fi or mobile data. Do you still get that error?
