Make sure your "use packet data" isn't tuned off. Go to settings>wireless and network>mobile networks>use packet data.
/\ /\ What they said... I can't open MMS if my data packet is off. But, it's easy to go and switch it on after you get an MMS, then click the link, go back to the MMS, and click download. It should open right up.
Are they just forcing us to use up data on text messaging? If so we are paying for that picture twice. Once for the fee I pay for the privilege of text messaging, and again for the data.
Actually most carriers, I believe, see it as a text message with multimedia (aka MMS) and it's the multimedia aspect they are charging for the data. It is not sending a plain text (aka SMS). But you are right about double dipping. You get dinged for the MMS message AND data.
That is unless you have it covered under a monthly plan.
Could be an issue with system settings. Did you double check the APN settings for MMS are set up correctly? That the APN type is set to internet+MMS? Maybe that might be the issue?
I press "download" it says downloading, then after a couple of minutes it goes back to "download" button and small message appears "download failed".
Came accross this thread when searching for a fix to no MMS download.
You get a tab appearing, click download,,,,wait,,,,,,wait,,,,,fail.
New Samsung, text, phone, internet all 100%
contacted provider after no success following many online suggestions.
Turns out some Telcos use a seperate APN for MMS.
Added it via setting/mobile networks/APN/menu/add.
I'm having a somewhat similar issue. All the sudden today I can't receive mms messages. I can still send them fine but cannot receive. It worked fine yesterday and I haven't changed anything since. I have AT&T and have unlimited data. Mobile Data IS checked marked in my settings. And im am bone stock, not rooted or anything running 4.1.2. Even if I send a pic to myself it'll show as sent but I get nothing. But regular SMS works just fine. I've restarted the phone and pulled the battery and still nothing.
This is the AT&T version of the Samsung Galaxy Note. The only difference between the AT&T Galaxy Note and the international version is a different processors.
The AT&T version uses a dual-core Snapdragon for better 4G LTE capabilities... Read More
