    Downloading

    Believe me..I am no techie...I have had the Mot. Droid a month and got sick of the same problem you're having and everyone else seems to be having. So, I went into my Go-Daddy account...typed in my accountmy Gmail address and now I get a copy immediately of my personal emails. Get the videos, photos...immediately! Works for me.

    I'm running Ultimate Droid 9.8 and my girlfriend is running stock and we BOTH have the same problem. I'm almost tempted to just do factory resets on both and see if that clears up anything... its pretty frustrating.

    Are your phones connected to WIFI while trying to download the MMS? when i had my moto-droid, i found that disabling or disconnecting from WIFI first and THEN attempting to download the message worked. The droid has to download MMS through 3g/1X and not wifi, sometimes i found that the phone didnt activate the data radio to download the message and just sat on wifi the whole time...

    figured it out yesterday, was a mix between having wifi Enabled ( what's the point of wifi if it breaks 3g ) and juice defender stopped using both and have been good
