    When someone sends me an MMS I push the "download" button and all it does is say "Currently unable to download message. Please try again later". Is there some setting on my p[hone that is preventing it from downloading MMS? I am running 2.2.1 and am on the T-mobile network.

    I found the solution to solve MMS download problem.
    Just hold the "Download" in your MMS for 2 seconds, then the button will become blur or grey with "downloading" text. Then the picture will appears. For downloading the picture to SD card, just hold down the picture for 2 seconds then the option to save to SD card will appears.
    Hope it will help you a lot. :)

    Now I know what you ask for about. Right now I have same problem, that my Optimus Black cannot send or even download picture message (or MMS, or Multimedia message). Everytime I receive MMS, then I click "download" button, but always shows "Currently unable to download message. Please try again later". It so strange that I have not changed the settings, and some days ago I still can send and receive MMS. All 3G and data are on, but I still cannot download and send MMS. What a pity. Is there anybody (especially LG-ers) in the world know the solution?

    I am having this same problem!

    GPRS works fine with my Browser/Twitter etc

    whenever I get a MMS/PXT it just shows a Download button in the Message and I press it (it changes to greyed out) then nothing happens.

    Frustrating alright!

    I got the same problem as this . .

    I can only receive the MMS after telling the person to send it again.
    On the 2nd go, the MMS shows up automatically.

    Hi all, I've been having the same problem (press download, nothing happens) and was looking around for a solution. Just figured it out myself after reading a few things. I usually use wi-fi to connect to the internet so I don't have my data turned on since I don't have a good data plan (too $$!)

    I decided to try turning it on. (If you're not sure what I'm talking about - in the top pull-down menu on my phone it's the second icon from the right - a little phone icon with two curves on the upper right corner to signify sending/receiving signal. When it's off, there's an X on it.)

    When I turned it on and pressed the download button in one of my MMS messages - voila! Images and videos downloaded and viewable. You can also save them to your SD card. So unfortunately I'll be paying for the KBs to download (I think?) but at least I know how to get the images now.

    Hope this works for you!

    I have recently bought a LG Optimus L7 and I have the same issue, I can't find any way to receive or send images through text messages... =(
  16. I was having the same problem for AGES, and couldn't find a fix anywhere online.
    Tonight I decided I had enough, backed up all my important info, and reset to factory default. It worked! I can now send and receive picture messages normally. It's worth a try to see if it works for you too :)

    My specs:
    LG Optimus One (p500) on Koodo network, OS version 2.3.3

    I may have a slightly different model, but on my LG Optimus, it's under Settings, Wireless and Networks, scroll down to Mobile Networks, select, then make sure there is a checkmark next to "Data enabled."
