Tourist I can't seem to send or receive pictures through text messages anymore it just says message failed even if data or Wi-Fi is on the pictures aren't very large and I'm only trying to send one of the time but I noticed it just too fails no matter what now when trying to send any sort of multimedia or receiving any multi-media it'll say download failed through SMS.

Look in your APN settings just in case, if it's not set up properly, mms wont go

Also depending on what SMS client you use, sometimes some of them seem to have problems sending and receiving mms (it was so for Android Messages for a very long time a few years ago)

Hey @nixi,


Did you get this sorted out? Let us know!




Hey @nixi


You should be able to send use your MMS on your phone. I just have a few questions to better understand what's going on:


- Were you ever able to use MMS from this device? If so, when did this start exactly?


- Did you try to restart your phone to see if you can get a better result?


- Do you have any trouble sending a SMS or MMS to yourself?


- Is this happening indoors and outdoors as well?


Let me know.
