Thumbs down [Q] MMS Downloading Error

Hey all,

Recently, my Galaxy will not download any sort of MMS messages, whether they be picture messages or part of group messages. The message will just be a pending download for a minute or two, then stop and say "Error: network error occurred". I have contacted AT&T tech support many times, where they reset my phone's connection to the network. I will get exactly two MMS to come through and then the problem starts again. Every third MMS, I have to contact tech support again.

My phone is rooted with towelroot, but I noticed the problem before I rooted it. Any suggestions on what this might be? I'm about at the point of trying a factory restore on the phone to see if it fixes it, but I'd rather not if at all possible. Thanks!

Try setting the apn for the phone. After installing a ROM from the international S5 my phone wouldn't download MMS. I fixed it by setting my apn.
