Question about LG Shine KE970 Cellular Phone

2 Answers

My LG shine (AT&T service provider), when trying to receive a picture MMS message, responds with the notice "Failed to retrieve message 6". I have read that this is a problem with Alltel's mms compatibility with LG phones. Can I change my message settings to retrieve these pictures?

    I purchased it brand new from an AT&T store, out of the box.

    Does this answer the question? I'm really not sure

Cant recieve pictures


Your phone cannot receive picture messages or MMS if the GPRS setting is not configured properly. Call your network service provider and ask for the settings. They will send it to you and give you instructions and information in the use of the MMS service. Usually there is a load requirement in receiving and sending MMS if you are using a prepaid sim.

Can't send or receive picture messages or download anything


In most cases, you need internet feature on your phone to use the picture messaging (MMS). In your case the free feature for internet should work fine. Keep in mind that you may be charged around $0.01 per kilobyte. The error you describe confirms the internet connection is not available and is causing the issue. This may simply be because the internet settings in your phone do not match the provider's settings. This happens when you buy an unlocked device. You will need to contact your provider to get the correct settings.

My lg shine cu720 can not download altell picture messages. It says failed to retrieve message 6.


you need a MMS configuratior sent to your phone so that you can enjoy picture messeges, either that or just power the phone off and back on and try it again, somethimes it's usually a bad connection only. Also in some cases when you never did a picture message before, you would have to send yourself 2 pic messages first that that would register your phone in the picture message service from your serv provider.
For your MMS configurator go to your Serv. providor web site
