    I have the 920. There have been a few times that I have received text messages that state "Get media content now." When I click on the message I hear a noise. However, I cannot retrieve the media content. Does anyone know how I can retrieve this content?

    This has happened to me as well but on my Samsung focus s. Usually means the picture was corrupted or didn't send right. Ask the person to send it again

    Thanks for your response. There have been 4 different times that 2 different people have sent text messages with media content. I have not been able to open any of them. It would seem strange that the media content was corrupted all 4 times.

    I am not sure. 2 of the messages just have a hyperlink that states: "Get media content now (1KB)"

    Do you have your cellular data turned off and running on WiFi only? I've found that if a pic is sent while on WiFi only it does exactly what you're describing.

    That did it. I knew that someone on here would have the solution. Apparently all of the "media content" related texts were text messages that were sent to multiple people at one time. I typically only use my wifi. However, with those particular text messages I needed to turn on my cellular plan. Again, thanks for your response.

    Not a problem, I had it happen when my brother texted me a couple pics one time. Glad it helped.

    I'm getting the "Get Media Content Now" message but am unable to download. I'm on AT&T and haven't been able to locate the app mentioned in the above comments. Anybody have any suggestions? Thank you.
