So i have been searching around these forums and the internet for a while trying to resolve my issue. So far no good :( Whenever i receive a mms, i click on the "get media content" link and then it says its getting media content and then nothing happens. sometimes it returns to its normal state and then other times it just remains on "getting media content..." . I got the access point app and tried clicking around and testing the waters but it still is stuck on "getting media content..." I even reset the phone multiple times. Please help me! Oh yeah, im on AT&T by the way and switched from the IPhone 4 to the lumia back in december and didnt have problems with this previously.

As crav4speed said, make sure data is on. I had a similar problem with MMS when I first got my Lumia 920. I thought that since I don't have a data plan for internet service then turning data off won't affect anything, but data does need to be turned on for MMS to work.

Do you have at least a 3g connection? I know if you have a weak signal or aren't on at least a 3g connection that will happen.Arguing with an ***** is like playing chess with a pigeon.
You could be the greatest player in the world, but the pigeon will still knock over all the pieces, s--t on the board and strut around triumphantly-Tomtom6 on NcSportbikes.com

Hi Mark, I had this problem on my unlocked 820 and there was no easy fix to be honest. What I actually done was call my network provider for the Windows Phone APN settings, I then entered them into the access point app manually and received an MMS instantly.
Every now and again it still doesn't automatically download it, but its MUCH better than before.
Type this in google and find the link to the 3uk page

That's strange, I'm not sure what's going on. Did you try contacting AT&T or Nokia? I suggest going to nokia.com > support > contact us and at the bottom of that page there's an option for chatting with a Nokia CSR. You can also call if you want. Actually, I just checked and the live chat/calling options are down on weekends so you would have to wait until tomorrow or try contacting AT&T.
Edit: Btw, is your phone from AT&T or is it unlocked? If it's from AT&T then Nokia and AT&T should be able to help. If not, then I don't know.

I will call att tomorrow and try to figure this out. Thank you for the help. Veganovus, i am a little confused with the 3uk page you told me to visit. I went onto the site and the APN settings they have seem like it is for a provider in the UK or something? I am a little unclear on what those settings are.
MDak280, my phone is purchased through AT&T so i guess it is locked. Ill give them a call and update this thread just in case anyone else has this same problem.
