    So when I get a forwarded pic text, I can't download it to my motorola droid. (the original first droid) I press "download" and it used to just hang at "download" and not do anything, but now I get this message that says "downloaded message .... was unsuccessful."

    I use handcent and just downloaded the app "save mms" and I still can't figure it out!

    anyone know how to solve this? does it have anything to do with my sd card? i shut off the phone and tried it again, and it still doesn't work :(

I just can't download/save his pics he sends. what is going on?

    a solution

    okay, so I've discovered that i'm able to view my friend's mms message to me after I deleted several message threads. My inbox was overstuffed i guess. I still dont understand though why i dont receive ANYTHING from my mom's phone when she tries to forward me a pic message. hmmm

    well, only one problem left to solve.

    I have had this happen to me as well. The fix is a funny one. Ask the person who is sending you pics to simply write something in the message with the picture. Then when you receive the text the picture will open up no problem. I don't know why this is but that is what fixed my pictures from not opening up.

    trial and error


    Thanks for this tip. It seems like lots of trial and error before a solution is reached. I got a fwd mms text last night, and after tapping download several times, I finally got a message saying that the download was unsuccessful. so, i just turned off the phone and when i turned it on again I got the pic.

    Also, if you're having trouble forwarding a mms text to someone, it's best to take out the hyphens (-) of the contact's phone number that you're sending to. so in the "to" area a number should be: 5557772222..no spaces or hyphens.
