    Ok here's the deal...whenever someone sends me anything that is a mms message the phone will not download it while on WiFi..I click download and nothing happens. But when I turn of WiFi and switch to mobile data it downloads like it's supposed to. Anyone else having or had this issue.

    I think so too because I definitely remember being able to do so before. I think it's a ploy to get us to use more data since unlimited data is gone now

    Actually, it has always been that you had to dl mms via mobile data and couldn't if you were on wifi... on all Android phones. I discovered this years ago when I thought mms wasn't working but would suddenly get my mms when I switched to mobile data. If it worked in the past, it is probably because both wifi and data was on. The phone will ignore data for most everything when both are on but know to resort to data for mms. The thing that drives me crazy is that now, most of the time it seems it is not enough to have both on but that I have to turn wifi off to force the phone to resort to data for mms.
