I am having the same problems. A friend sent pics and it says: Message size:xxkb Downloading. Can some one advise how to fix this please. This is on the Samsung Strat.
Is your cellular data connection turned on? Picture messages won't transfer over a wifi network.
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
We need to get your pictures working! Do you have the data connection turned off? Do you have MMS turned on? You can check by going to: Settings>Messages>MMS Messaging. Let us know!
