I was able to receive group texts until recently, but then I kept getting the "get media content now" message. I clicked on it, but it just bounced back. Then the phone just kept resending the text, "get media content now." I even deleted the thread and the messages kept coming, but wouldn't open when clicked. I went into the sprint store and they had no fix which was quite disappointing. After looking online, I found the fix that worked for me. I went to Settings>System>Cellular>and changed the Mode Selection from "LTE & CDMA" to CDMA.
Having the same problem. Very annoying. Hopefully it will not take long for Sprint to figure it out. And thanks for your fix. It seems to work. What functionality do I lose by not having 4G?
While searching on the Windows Phone 8 website, i found information that reported a solution for not being able to send or receive MMS texts: Enter a new MMS APN (Access Point Name) "...based on your location and mobile operator."
The issue is getting all the following information from the operator, and then manually entering and saving it:
Okay, Sprint, please, supply all that for the HTC 8XT Windows Phone 8.

Messrs. 2ROZ and RMJDEER923 et al:
As an update, I do have full 4G capabilities after my self "fix" of the "get media content" problem. I never had to do the CDMA thing. I think the key is to never click the "get media content" in the string, just delete it when you see it.
I think my issue was SMS messages, but I do not know what kind of message was sent by the person with the 15 group text phone numbers that started the whole mess. All problems started after that, and all messages with the stupid "Media content in this message. Get media content now (1K)" were from the 15 people in the group text. None of them were sending me anything; I asked them. Yes it took three days of deleting each media content message w/o clicking on it, and there were a bunch of them.
I do like my HTC8XT with the new 8.1 upgrade. It is very cool for a phone that the Android and Apple snobs laugh at, but they wish they had the long battery life that I experience with it. I travel w/o a charger, and I rarely run down very far.
Best wishes and happy holidays.
same issue. It started around dec 10, just like others. updates are not resolving the issue. from 3am to 7am i receive about 10 'get media content' texts, i know those users had not tried to reach me within that time frame. I beleive I am not receiveing images and am uncertain if i have missed actual texts. I've been able to receive some texts during this inconvinience.
