    My phone gets the text with the picture, but doesn't download it. I go to manually download it and it says it was an unsuccessful download over and over. Any help? :/

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    are you using the default messaging app? If so, if you long press on the attachment/photo, you get an option to view. If you long press on the message itself, you get an option to save it. If you are doing that and it just won't dl, maybe it is in a format that the phone can't handle.

    What app are you using?

    Do you have a 3g connection?

    I am also having this issue. I have uninstalled Handcent and used the defualt messaging and I am still using Handcent and it wont work. Like soemone will send a picture and it will come in and not show anything and then it will have a little download button to download it manually. I push the download button and it says cannot install. I do have 3g connection and I know someone that gets the perfectly fine on there Eris.
