    It seems like the people who I am not getting their messages to download are IPhone users.

    I have a Samsung S8+, AT&T Service, nothing fancy done to my phone. I am really just a basic smart phone user who doesn't mess with anything.

    I am seemingly getting normal messages 'occasionally'. Maybe half the messages. I am also having problems sending texts failed for no apparent reason very sporadically.

    Welcome to Android Central! Are the failed messages all MMS (i.e., picture messages or group texts)? Do you see a message that says "Tap to Download," but nothing ever does?

    There is a button to hit to download, but it always fails.

    I also have a very strange Icon along the top bar on my phone ... kind of like an upside down yield sign (triangle shape) with and up arrow and down arrow side by side ... kind of like a 'two way' traffic symbol. I can't paste the screen shot of the icon.

    Here's how to post a screenshot: http://forums.androidcentral.com/gen...d-central.html. It's easiest on the main forums website on your computer browser, or the AC Forums app (but not the Android Central app).

    What you're describing makes it sound like your mobile data isn't functioning properly, or the APN settings aren't correct. Can you confirm your mobile data is working? If it is, then check to make sure your APN settings are correct for AT&T: https://forums.androidcentral.com/e?...token=NCUrt_wc
