Help Downloading images from texts

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!
