PSA regarding MMS/SMS group and text messaging issues for anyone thinking of buying a G4 on AT&T.
I am X-posting this to the AT&T Forum & Reddit in the hopes of getting a response from AT&T that isn't just the standard template response and so that anyone that is considering this phone is aware of the issue.
It is sporadic and hard to replicate but in my case occurs more often in group chats vs. 1-on-1 conversations (though I have lost messages in 1-on-1 conversations as well).
I will be texting or group chatting away then every so often receive a message like this:
When I click the download button in the dialog box nothing happens. Same issue on Textra, the stock messaging app & hangouts. Same issue after factory reset. Same issue after calling AT&T and having my phone "re-registered" on the network.
Threads where this issue has been reported:
It is bizarre that such basic phone functionality as text/mms has such a huge bug to the point where many many people have reported missing messages again and again with no response from AT&T or LG. Who cares how good the camera is if I can't have a reliable conversation??? Very frustrated that I have to message people "hey did you text me? what did you say?" and no sign of a fix on the horizon.
