I have a Galaxy S2 running Android 4.0.4. When people send me text messages with a picture attached, I receive the message but it says something like this, with a "download" button:
Message size: 1KB Expires: 8:52AM, Mar 12 [Download]
When I press the download button, it changes to the text "Downloading" for a moment, and then it changes back to the download button and nothing else happens. I was expecting the picture to open, or something. Is there some way I can download & view these pictures?
[Update]: I have seen other suggestions to turn on mobile data. I went to:
Applications => Settings => Data Usage
and verified that Mobile data = ON. As an experiment, I toggled it OFF then ON again, then pushed the Download button on my text message again, but got the same result (it said "downloading" briefly then nothing).
I have also turned off auto-retrieve here:
Messaging app => Menu => Settings => Multimedia message (MMS) settings
Auto-retrieve is unchecked & still no success. I'm pretty stumped.
Update #2: Suggestion to check APN settings. I went to:
Settings => Wireless & network
But there is no "mobile" choice. There is a "more => mobile networks" but it only has "3G data" and "connections optimizer". Is there some other way to find/set the APN settings?
