Can't download pics and vids from text messages
I got my droid 2 a week ago, and one thing that bothers me is the text messaging. I've had friends text me pictures and videos but I can never receive them. I get a message telling me to download the file, but when i click download, it says downloading and nothing happens past that. The file never downloads and I am unable to see anything in those messages. Please help!
Hey I got my pictures to work this is how
I got frustrated and called verizon for support. They had me go into manage applications...then all applications....and open my internet browser and Market. Then I cleared the cache on them both. After that I went back to my texts and my messages download perfectly. I think I just need to clear the cache peridoically. I hope this helps
Found a Fix to stalled multimedia files sent via text message
Here it is
I have a Samsung Captivate by AT&T. I have been having issues with receiving multimedia files (specifically pictures). To fix this issue I turned on "Data Network Mode" aka 3G. Then I went to the "messaging" app and at the main screen where it shows you the threads and option to create a new message hit the "menu key" (key to the far left that looks like a piece of paper with two lines on it). go to "settings" and scroll down to "auto retrieve" and unclick it. This will give you the option to download each picture individually when you go back into the thread where you are trying to get your pics.
If you forget to turn on 3G before you click "download" on your file in the thread, then just back out of the message screen and then go back it. This will get your "download" button back to get it.
Note: you may need to turn off wifi for the 3G to activate and take over before downloading your pic.
Let me know if this helps!
Problems retrieving videos through messages
I've had my droid for a few months now, every time I try to download a video that my friends have sent to me it will download completely and then show me a blank text.
Is my droid not compatible with getting videos or is my phone glitchy? The same thing is happening with my mother's phone and I'm really confused as to why it won't work.
I have a camera so my phone must be compatible with getting videos.
Can anyone help me as to why this isn't working?
