Cannot receive MMS messages
1
Hello,

Google messages cannot receive/download MMS messages. However, other apps can. Google messages is also able to send MMS messages. The problem is purely downloading them. I'm always left with "Message expired or not available". I have cleared the cache of the app, joining the beta program, and leaving the beta program, reinstalled the app, tried receiving them with WiFi off, reset APN settings, restarted the phone, cleared the phone's cache, among other things. While I am able to simply use the built in app to solve the issue, I'd like to continue using Google Messages. 

My phone is the OnePlus 6t running the latest update, and this is a new issue. I was able to receive them in the past.

Thank you for any suggestions.

Did your phone also send text to your contacts around 12 to 1 am overnight? They would be old message that were sent to them but resent. Google Messages has given me so man problems!

Same issue here since updating my 6T to Android 10. The issue seems to be limited to the Android Messages app. I have no issues with MMS on the OnePlus messaging app nor Textra or other messaging apps.

I have the OnePlus 6t also and I have the same problem and performed the same steps as OP. I am on TMobile.

Same problem. Cleared device cache partition, wiped all storage for Google Messages, tried several versions of APK, nothing works.

OnePlus messaging app works, but not a fan compared to Google Messages.
