I cannot open an attachment from a text msg


I cannot open an attachment from a text msg

I have read the manual and auto retreive is already checked. Someone sent me an attachment with an address that I desperately need. All I get is a box with an arrow (like a "play" button), but when I click the button it gives me a black, blank screen and then reverts back to the conversation list.  I also can't find a forward button for text messages. Thanks for any help.

I cannot open an attachment from a text msg

I haven't gotten a media message on my phone in a long time, so I might have forgotten exactly how this works.  I think you can long press to save the attachment.  Then open the it from the SD card, using the media viewer or another viewer.

For future media messages, it may be better just to use email instead.
