    For some reason when I hit the download button, nothing happens. It says "downloading" for like 30 seconds and then nothing. I check my downloads folder and it's not there. Any advice? Is this happening to anyone else?

    I had the same problem. It seems that you get a one chance to save the image (on ChompSMS). Afterwards, when looking at the image, the menu flashes very quickly and you cannot save the image anymore. It happens on the default sms app to. I have a Nexus S 4G. I have not found a way around this.

    I don't think you are able to download pics while using mobile hotspot, not sure if you were but that may have been the problem

    This is happening to me right now. I press download on the text, it says downloading for about 30 seconds, then the download button appears again. I checked my Gallery and Download folders and nothing. Help!
