How do open pics sent to me through text message using my Nokia Lumia 1020. I get the message from the sending saying "Get media content now" 32K. When I touch it the statement reads "Getting media content", however; it doesn't upload. Please tell me how to set up the phone to open the pics

  • Are you able to send picture messages OK?

Make sure Data is turned on. I was using Wi-Fi and assumed this was good enough. When I turned Data on, the picture came through.


Go to messaging settings and On the "Automatically download MMS" option On..This will help i guess

  • If it doesn't download when the OP selects Get Media Content, this will not help anything.
