I received a text message and when I try to view it I get this message: "failed to play picture message".   How can I view this message?  Can I view it online?  Can I forward it to my email?

The message was just a standard picture.  I tried re-booting / re-setting the phone by taking the battery out but that didn't help.  I deleted messages in the inbox so there was room.  I think maybe the inbox was almost full when the picture was received so it wouldn't open and still wouldn't after making room in the inbox.  I gave up and deleted the picture message.
