    Some texts received require that the message be downloaded before viewing. Texts have no pics or attachments, they are simple texts. Don't know why they would be required to be downloaded first. Phone is Verizon Moto M

    Hi

    If they are longer than 160 characters they have probably been sent as MMSs. Samsung phones convert SMS to MMS automagically if they are over this length (rather than sending 2 or more SMSs)
