    So when I send someone a picture/video through messaging and they reply, there is a download button. When i touch that it says "downloading" for about 1 second and then a message pops up saying "Download of message Re: New Message from *friend's name* was unsuccessful." I have wi-fi and cell service so I don't know why it won't download. I'm assuming they are replying with text but either way nothing is downloading. Please help me!

    I figured out the problem. I had to turn wifi off in order to download the replay. Same goes when people send a pic or video in messaging. I guess it's something about Sprints network vs wifi, according to other sites.

    Had this exact same problem on the Epic. Disabling WiFi "fixed" the problem. Lame workaround though.

    Does the same thing on my Droid Eris with KaosFroyo (doesn't do it in stock Android 2.1 though). You can't download MMS while connected to wifi. I think its a bug though, hopefully the devs will fix the ROM. Dunno about you guys though.
