    It would be a lot more helpful if you put a little more effort in explaining your issue....

    That sounds like a problem with your APN settings.

    Check your APN settings (as Unforgiven pointed out) and your MMS settings.

    I've had these issues before.

    What phone do you have and what texting app are you using?

    Yes, agreed. Must be an MMS problem as you don't download SMS, and 19 times out of 20 those are APN problems.
