    I'm having problems downloading pictures from one friend. When I click download it tells me thedownload was unsuccessful. I've tried taking my batttery out deleting all other threads. Any suggestions on what to try next? I have downloaded handcent that doesn't work either.

    All my other pictures just appear in text messages so I don't have to download them. I have received some before that I could click download on and it worked.

    So are you doing a long press (press and hold) on the photo and it says successful. Have you checked the download folder on your SD card?

    With handcent and even the stock messenger you long press on the picture and a menu with options should pop up. Copy attached to sd card should be one of the options. The only time I've seen a download option is in an email.

    That's how it normally works but for some reason I get a download button from this sender.

    Hopefully someone else jumps in who has had this happen to them since they pics aren't appearing in the DCIM folder.

    Having the same problem

    I am currently having the same picture messaging problem which seems to only happen when I am getting a picture message from another droid phone.

    This started for me on Friday after Verizon sent me a replacement phone which I have since been sent another replacement for to "fix" this problem. I have spent hours in the store and on the phone and they can't recreate the problem.

    I was having the same problem. Picture would not download. Here is the fix that I found works.

    Have whoever is sending you the picture write something in the message part. Can be as simple as " here is your pic". Then when you receive it, the pic will open. I cannot explain it but that is how I fixed it.
