Android Central Question

Samsung galaxy s21 with Verizon as a carrier. When talking via text, my phone will show that it is downloading something in the conversation like a photo or a video, but nothing ever shows up. And the person I am texting never sent me anything.

Welcome to Android Central! If you receive an MMS message (e.g., a picture text or group text) and your mobile data is not on (or not configured correctly), you'll see a message that says "Tap to Download." Make sure your mobile data is on so that you don't see this.
