    Recent Problems Receiving Picture Messages

    Have had my Droid Eris for about a month. Just a couple days ago sometimes when I get a picture message a gray box shows that says download. When I click to download i get a message saying Download of message unsuccessful. Sometimes I get the picture message right away but most of the time its this problem with the gray box and unable to download it when I click it. Anyone have a solution?

    MMS messages don't download because of a bug

    My wife's phone has been having problems downloading picture messages for a while now.

    I'm an Android developer so I plugged her phone into the adb debugger and pulled some trace messages as her phone tried to download the picture messages. Trace messages are like a play-by-play logbook of what the phone and its apps are doing at any given time.

    As it turns out, her phone is being provided an invalid URL for the multimedia portion of the message and so her phone is never able to download certain messages.

    In other words, VERIZON is saying "hey, here's your message, here's the subject, here's the body, and use this URL to get the picture" but that URL is mangled sometimes.

    I've seen two forms of malformed URLs on her phone so far, I'll paste the relevant portions of the trace log:

    First test message, from me:

    04-26 19:11:35.783 I/InetAddress( 299): Unknown host 69.78.70..70, throwing UnknownHostException


    And then we see this from a picture message from another source:

    04-26 19:27:31.087 I/InetAddress( 299): Unknown host 69.78.130103, throwing UnknownHostException

    In both cases the IP address of the MMS provider is mangled.


    The big question: How would one ever get this information to the developers at Verizon?




    Two more broader message snippets:

    04-26 19:27:29.913 V/MmsProvider( 114): Query uri=content://mms/28, match=1
    04-26 19:27:30.853 D/HtcCdmaStatusBar( 68): provide dormancy network icon net:5

    Bandaid: Hard reset

    The hard reset wipes out all user data so make sure you sync your contacts with gmail first so afterwards they come back after you sync again. Also, I pulled the SD card during the reset for good measure. Afterwards I put it back in and it sees the multimedia again.

    SOLVED: Don't use task killer.

    After the hard-reset the problem went away.

    I'm now certain that the problem originated by using the task killer app on the phone. The task killer killed the DB writer process during an I/O operation on the messages database.

    Bottom line: Don't use those damn task killer apps!
    note: The guys at our local Verizon store actually downloaded and installed the task killer for us.

    For a detailed description of what is happening, see this:

    I have a similar problem, but yet kinda different. What is happening with my phone is it is not getting the message ID... any ideas why?

    05-31 02:53:19.564 V/TransactionService( 283): 4-Handling incoming message: { what=1214 when=6674637 obj=com.android.mms.transaction.NotificationTransa ction: serviceId=4 }

    05-31 02:53:19.674 V/MmsProvider( 138): Query uri=content://mms/inbox/6, match=3
    05-31 02:53:19.704 D/Jerry ( 283): retrieveTransaction server URI >http://69.78.130.23/servlets/mms?message-id=
    No I did not edit out my message IDs. That is a strait bugreport dump.
    Only thing is that I have hard reset, and reprogrammed many times to try and fix this... Any ideas?
