    Wink Can't download multimedia messages for some reason...

    Hi everyone. My phone hasn't been rooted and my problem is as the title says, I can't receive any multimedia messages. I hit download in the texts and it just says downloading for a while then gives me the option to hit it again. It could be one simple setting that will fix it, I've tried going to Menu > Settings > Wireless & Networks > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names > *hit menu* and doing the Reset to Default option, once upon a time it worked fine, no clue when it stopped working because I don't receive too many multimedia messages. Thanks in advance for your help!

    How long has this been happening? Have you checked with AT&T yet? Possibly have them reapply your data plan. Possibly a change in your local network has messed with the ability to properly receive the MMS.

    Actually, when I first got my Atrix I couldn't get MMS, they applied it then. Any reason why I should call and get them to apply it again or it's another issue?

    I've just found that it's usually something on their end if you get the message but cannot get the attachment. I'm not sure why it would change all of a sudden. Perhaps something in their network changed?

    I mainly am just curious what all needs to be enabled on my phone to be able to receive MMS. I did add a few different widgets to my homescreen, wifi / bluetooth / gps / airplane mode on and off, I have the GPS and Wifi on to try and download it, but I'm just curious.

    You can always check Settings > Battery and data manager > Data delivery > Data enabled and/or Background data.

    The first of the two should be the only one necessary.

    Hmm, I was getting unregistered network earlier randomly so I rebooted my phone and then voila, I successfully received the MMS. Not sure how long it will last, but for now, it's working! Thanks for your help regardless though das8nt, it's much appreciated.

    Good to hear it got worked out.
