Can't send/receive picture/video messages in the middle of a call

[ Edited ]

Is it possible to send or receive picture and/or video messages in the middle of a call?

I haven't been able to, my gf will send me a picture over MMS and it just says "Could not retrieve message content.  Try again later." and now I can't ever get the proper message unless she resends it.  Unless there is a way to retrieve the file again without her resending it.


Any ideas?

Hi and welcom to the forums!

Although this is listed for a PEARL, the principal is the same:




 Also the next time it happens, hang up and go to OPTIONS -STATUS and write down the file free and file total

numbers. I could be memory related.
