unable to download from the play store, plus other stuff :(

Wednesday 03rd of April 2013 /
hello, im a fairly new Android user. ive had my phone for about 2 months. I'm running 4.1.1 jellybean... im on at&t. im a former iphone user & I never had any of these issues with that phone. 1. I cannot download any apps, or anything for that matter. When I open the play store, it immediately crashes. when I try to save a picture, my browser crashes. I tried the whole clear the cache thing & the running applications, to no avail. I keep getting this error message that says "unfortunately the process com. google. process. gapps. has stopped." 2. I am unable to receive mms. I can send them fine, but when I receive them, it'll always say 'from hidden sender' I cant view the picture, & it'll keep sending over & over again. more recently, I'll keep getting the alert for a hidden mms msg in my notifications but not in my messaging app. When I clear it, it just keeps coming back. 3. my phone gets extremely hot & im not sure why. it'll be so hot, I'll sit it in the Window to cool down. 4. my phone just randomly restarts itself. 5. don't even get me started

Is Android really so great?

Friday 03rd of February 2012 /
I own an HTC Desire (original one, not the HD, Z, etc), and must say, after 1.5 years of ownership, I cannot wait to get rid of it.Running Android 2.2 on it, and here are some of the problems why I am disappointed in Android:1. To receive a picture message (which is DATA), I have to switch OFF my data connection, otherwise I cannot receive it at all. Very annoying, actually.2. Once you have received the picture message, my phone cannot open it and display the image, unless it was sent from another HTC. I had to download a third party app just to view it, and even then it is so small in size you cannot really make anything out.3. When editing a calendar event, with the standard included calendar app, the phone gets confused and add a day to the date which I specify. I simply CANNOT solve this problem.4. Many times when opening a new text message, the phone actually opens an old message which lies ten conversations down in the inbox, and from another sender. WTF?The phone has reset itself numerous times. Factory resets/restores do not make a difference at all. These points above are ju

Can't download mms messages

Monday 06th of August 2012 /
Hi There,Cannot download mms messages on Samsung Galaxy S3. I click 'download' and it changes to 'downloading' After a few seconds, it goes back to saying 'download' without opening the picture message. I have tried this on wifi, on my data carrier, with mobile data on and off. Have also restarted the phone. This happens most of the time. Sometimes, it allows me to download though.Appreciate any suggestions.Thanks

Can't download picture messages

Thursday 15th of December 2011 /
I receive text messages and it gives me an option to download them, but when I do they do not download and it gives me an error. Sometimes I can receive picture messages and other times I cannot. I haven't figured out what causes it yet. Anyone have a solution for this? I also can't even forward the message to another number or email the message to view on a computer.Anyone have solutions?

Cannot send or receive MMS messages

Friday 08th of April 2011 /
I wanna say sorry ahead of time for posting this hear after posting this in another forum, but I haven't gotten any feedback or help and was hoping someone here knew what was going on.Starting about 2 days ago, I haven't been able to send or receive any picture messages. I had the phone for about a week and a half and was sending and receiving perfectly fine. All of a sudden, when I tried to send a message, it would provide me a little icon showing it trying to send (with a little clock in the corner of the message), but after like 5 minutes, I'd get a notification saying that it gave me a "Generic Network Failure" and was unsuccessful. I've tried sending when on WiFi and Mobile Data and in different locations. When receiving a message I get a message within the text conversation asking me if I'd like to download or decline the picture someone is sending me. This is a new notification as I don't remember getting this prior to this issue. If I click download, the same type of thing happens. After a few minutes I get a failure.I called VZW tech support and they had me do rese

Download pictures sent via text messages

Wednesday 12th of March 2014 /
HiI notice that when someone sends me a picture in a text message, I cannot download it to drive or my gallery. When I press on the photo from the message, it gets larger and my choices are only to save as either a contact photo, home screen wallpaper, lock screen wallpaper. I would think there would be an option to save somewhere there. When I press the menu button at the button, that does not do anything. Any ideas? Thanks
