    Sometimes, short messages don't come in directly but need to be downloaded. Why won't they arrive directly? Today the download fails. Why?

    If they're sent to a group, they're sent as either individual messages or as MMS at the sender's discretion. If there's an attachment, it's sent as MMS. If there's an emoji, some apps send the text as MMS.

    And if it's MMS it has to be downloaded. If it only started failing today it's probably a problem with your carrier, but check your APN anyway.

    Welcome to Android Central! Make sure your mobile data is on -- MMS requires mobile data, not voice signal or wi-fi.
