    when i receive an mms message, i can't open it. in the stock message app, there is a download button. i'll press that, it will change to downloading, then nothing.

    i started to use chompsms to save battery (i posted previously about awake vs. up time) and the same thing: the bubble will be there stating: "MMS content for this message hasn't yet been downloaded (make sure Auto-retrieve is ticked in the settings of the built-in Messaging app)

    i made sure and it still won't open.

    any help?

    thanks in advance

    I had an issue with my mms - couldn't send them, and the received ones just had the download button which did nothin, then after a while (like a day or two) gave me a message to view the mms online via the internet.

    The only solution I could do was a factory reset which wiped my settings and info except for that on the SD card - backup anything you want to keep!!

    Info from here: T-Mobile site link

    Worked for me :)
