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.

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