    Not received pictures through messaging from one person

    My son-in-law tried sending me a picture that was 30k and it just keeps saying downloading. We had him send it to my husband's phone, then my husband forwarded to my messaging and I got it just fine. Why can't I get the picture from my son-in-law. He has tried to send it twice and they both say "downloading"

    Hi Joyce, welcome to the forum.

    Your issue was probably just a temporary coverage issue if you got the message after your husband forwarded it to you. To the network there is not a difference between the message coming from your son-in-law's phone and your husband's.

    Messages do not go phone-to-phone. They all go to the nearest (usually) cell tower, get routed through a network (of wires, not through the air) and sent to the cell tower closest to the person you are sending the message to and the data goes over the air to the handset.

    Until the data gets to your phone the network does not know what the data is. It's only when it gets to your phone does what the message is matter. (This is an oversimplification but it gets more complicated really fast)

    It's kind of like a package. The delivery driver only knows what the address is not what is in the box. When it gets to your house (phone) somebody looks at it and says its for you. Your phone now knows if its data for your browser or email for you to read.

    On one more thing, the message might have become corrupt the first time it was sent (it happens) but not when it was sent the 2nd time.

    It it happens again (maybe have some people send you similar size/types of messages) than we can't start looking for a pattern.

    Hope this helps
