    Default Re: Pictures In Text Messages Fail To Download

    I have read the thread below regarding this picture messaging failure. I have a Samsung Galaxy 4, never had an Android before. Phone is fine, having issues with this picture messaging though, no idea why the pictures will no download. Have data on, did all the tips and tricks below, but none of it is working. Help??

    The strange thing about turning off auto retrieve is that you now have to do what the phone should do automatically. I would leave it on and make sure your data is on in settings/data usage/mobile data

    WiFi alone will not let pics download in messenger. I keep my data off to prevent over use and as soon as I turned it on and went to each failed media message and tapped they all came through no problem.

    Its a data thing Hope this helps😊

    Welcome to Android Central! Can you give more details? Do you actually have a Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch, or a more modern phone?
