Question about Samsung SGH-a737 Cellular Phone

Samsung SGH-A412 not playing multimedia messages

I have a Samsung SGH-A412 Mobile Phone that will not allow me to view multimedia messages, pictures, video etc sent via sms.

I have been pulling my hair out trying to discover how to do this to no avail.

When I receive the message from someone, I open the message, click on retrieve, it then says it's retrieving with the little moving bar underneath, then after about 10 to 15 seconds comes back with a message saying 'Retrieving Failed Connection Refused Try Again? and this is the same every time.

How do I fix this or does this phone simply not play these messages.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
Yea same exact thing for me, and I can't get on media net or do anything with the internet. I have a Samsung SGH-737 and I haven't had it for that long at all, no water damage, no dropping it etc.

Ring up your network provider i.e vodafone orange etc ask them for the settings for your multimedia and internet they will then send you 2 messages you open the first and at the bottom it will say something like configure click on that and it will change your internet and multi media settings but remember to configure both messages not just one and then you should be up and running hope this was helpful x

hi i had the same problem with viewing and sending mms and my provider was unable to help. You need to get the settings from your mobile network provider and then go to: Menu, settings, connection settings, choose whatever provider you are with eg optus, vodafone or whatever.  Enter and save the settings by hitting save. Get back to menu, messages, settings, multimedia message, profile.  Select the same name that you saved the settings under previously. This is how I worked mine out and it works now. Good luck
