My phone will receive picture messages but i cant download it. The message comes through with all the details and an option to download but when i select download it will just say downloading for ages. Never actually completes the download.

 


Is this a problem with the network or my phone settings? I had the same problem when i was on o2. Found loads of answers about iPhones but none with the Samsung Galaxy Ace.

 

Please help!!
