I had the same problem when using my LG G2. But, I sometimes was not able to receive MMS's from Android AND iPhone users. It got very frustrating. I am always in full, or near full LTE, or on a stable WiFi connection. The only, temporary, solution was to use another messaging app. I tried a handful, got sick of that, so just used Hangouts as my default. That fixed the problem!... For a couple of weeks, then I would get the same "broken" image thumbnail where the picture or text that the MMS was supposed to be.

Now that I'm on my G3, I noticed this problem was even more serious. Still in the AT&T store, I received an MMS, and was not able to download it. They exchanged it with another G3. Got home, same problem. It's a complete hit or miss, being sent to me from and Android or iPhone, I receive about 80% of the incoming MMS's, and the rest I will ask the person to send it to my email, or use whatsapp if that's an available option.

I have called and emailed about the problem and I've only gotten the responses that you think a "technical level 2" employee would give.

I had this same thing happen from an iPhone user (she was probably using verizon). My wife's iphone sent me an image a few minutes later and it worked fine. She is on ATT. So i wonder if it's a network problem.

Saw this on another thread and thought i would toss it here, it basically says that sometimes Ad block can mess with some MMS possibly. Just tryinig to put all the information in one place...

Apple has admitted to delaying messages between Android and I phones in the past so it could be doing it again ("accidentally")
