    I have a samsung galaxy exhibit II 4G that recently started this issue and I can't find a solution and was hoping experts out there in the community might have an idea.
    The problem: All incoming texts that are photos or have photos attached do not show up. I only get a message with a file size, date, and a "downloading" button. Obviously I click the button and nothing happens.
    I just updated my software through the samsung kies site to the latest version hoping that would help in some way, but no change.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks in advance for any assistance or insight you can provide.
