LG THRILL

Bought my daughter the LG Thrill. She loves the phone but I just found out yesterday that she has never been able to receive or send pictures in text messages. She is away at college and text messaging is the way we stay in contact. Made a trip to see her and asked to see her phone and what it does when I send a picture. There is a download box and when we click it, it says downloading and nothing happens, picture does not show up in gallery either. I searched the user manuals, did the tutorials, searched the internet, emailed LG to find out how we can change the settings to have the pictures in the text message when she opens them, like my phone does. Anyone know who to change this setting?

Make sure that she has an active 3G network connection when downloading the mms message.
Probably from mobile, maybe. Smiley Happy

I get the same "Downloading" error on my Samsung Captivate sometimes. It's frustrating because I am not able to view the pictures even if I do try to re-download them.

Re: LG THRILL

I contacted LG and quickly got a response. They said to open text messaging, then select the settings and make sure auto-retrieval was checked. Contacted my daughter and told her what to do, the box was already checked, had her unchecked and then recheck it and shut off the phone for a few minutes and turn back on. Still not working! Smiley Sad
