I am unable to download certain picture attachments onto my phone.
A friend of mine sent me some pictures and when i went to view them I was told I'd have to download them. Upon clicking download in a couple of minutes I got a message saying I was unable to download the attachment and to try again later. I waited and tried again but still got the same message. My friend sent more pictures that all came up the same way. I thought it my be the size content or the phone that they were using, but they lowered the quality of the picture and tried sending it from another phone. I sill received the same message. I have received pictures from this person before and the have used up more and less amounts of space. I am unsure as to whether I have some option on that needs to be taken off to download pictures or if the situation can be corrected at all.
Re: I am unable to download certain picture attachments...
If it's a motorola, that's the problem. I'm having the same issue. It's nothing to do with size. motorola have been apparently fixing the problem for two weeks! Especially problematic if the sender is on O2 as well.

For everything you want to view on a computer, tablet or phone, you need a viewer. For pictures in .jpg go .png, you need a Photo viewer. Dow a .PDF, you need a PDF reader and for text you need a text reader. Formatted text, need a word or other reader.
So downloading is not the biggest problem. Having the correct programs (apps) installed is more of an issue.
Check for your device what you need to view the picture. Realise most RAW pictures can't be viewed on phones or tablets, because every camera model has its own RAW format and needs its own translation. For RAW you need even special program's on a computer.
First make sure you can view the file on your tablet, before you start downloading it.
you might have to enlarge it before you send it at the right size if you are unable to enlarge it once it has been received on your phone though some mms message can only be sent at a certain size hope this helps
Here is what I do and it works for me: I go to my inbox, see the message with the attachment logo, click ok, i go all the way down to highlight the attachment, press menu and then save attachment. Choose a name and it will be stored in My Pictures. I had an error message saying "File is too long". I reseized the image to 130 x 130 pix and sent it again, did the same whole thing and now I was able to view it. However i couldn't use it as Wallpaper. Hope this works for you.
I had same problem. I downloaded to my images folder but when tried to view I got "File too large" i reseized the image to be 130 x 130 pix and now it worked, I was able to view it. However I couldn'd use it as Wallpaper : (
I had/have the same problem using L200 and SDHC memory card, called Samsung. Can't view certain pictures on camera or computer, camera freezes when viewing those certain pictures, green light flashing.
Samsung support told me that I needed to copy my (good) pictures to a computer first because a memory format will erase everything. Then format (menu->settings->format->yes) my memory card. Tried this just now and took some new pictures, so far so good.
Acc to us this is mms service issue .To recive or send picture messages u need to activate mms and take settings for the same from ur service provider then u will be able to downloads picture messages else ask ur service provider for more details regarding mmms ....
