    hi, I am having problems receiving text messages. For the most part I receive messages just fine and some photos, but some randomly won't come through - I'm assuming they're mostly pics. :mad:

    I am using Hello SMS but I've had the same problem with the stock messaging app and Hangouts. I get the error message from Hello SMS "Receiving Message Failed", and whenever I press the "Retry" button it never works. Oftentimes I get a text message perfectly fine, and along with it the error message.

    I've tried multiple things; turning wifi off and on again, updating prl and profile and rebooting, factory reset...

    I'm using Virgin Mobile. I tried calling them and they were unable to help, they said it was some kind of "outage" and that the problem would be fixed the next day, nothing has happened

    Your photos sometimes download and sometimes don't? Where are you can't download photos?

    Hmm... I used to have a problem where in my hometown I couldn't download photos unless I updated my profile/prl, but worked fine everywhere else I went. My problem went away when I upgraded to zv4 and the new baseband. You could try clearing your carrier data and reactivating by dialing ##72786#

    Been happening to me as well, usually when message is sent from iPhone, it gets stuck continuously downloading, this one has been downloading since 4pm

    So I just let it keep downloading, and at 1am the message finally came through, and by the looks of it can see why it might have had trouble coming in [​IMG]
