    How long are you waiting? If this "Download" button appears, its most likely an MMS message, which will have sound as well as pics...and depending on size, can take a few minutes to download depending on your Data speed.

    Sometimes, I also get a message when downloading attachments that "Network is busy" or the like.

    Switch over to 3G data and see if it downloads then...not saying it will, but doesnt hurt to check.

    Also, there may be a problem with what was sent from the senders end...file could be corrupted...dont know why this would cause it to not download though...
