Go to settings, turn on delete old messages. Been trying to figure this out for almost a half a year!!! turn that option on even though you or I don't want to turn it on and everything is working perfect now. I almost guarantee it will work! figured I answer since Samsung won't. They must be blinded by their trillions of dollars and can't see this thread.
This has been killing me. For me the problem came down to there is the "Messages" app that comes with your Samsung phone and if you go to the Google Play there is an additional "Messages" app. If you install the one with this icon it fixes the problem.
Note that the little triangle for the message bubble starts at the top left, not the bottom.
I have had the same problem for months! I just found this on the internet somewhere else, I did it and it worked. Good luck to everybody that's having the same problem and hopefully it works for them.
No, the system cache partition stores temporary system data. It's supposed to allow the system to access apps more quickly and efficiently, but sometimes things get cluttered and outdated, so a periodic cache clearing can help make the system run more smoothly.
@SamsungAdam - Unfortunately this does not fix the problem. I have had this issue for almost all of 2020 as I can recall and have tried the wipe cache partition trick several times. If it works, it is only briefly.
My wife has an S9 with the same problem.
This needs to be fixed ASAP, it literally makes sending an MMS message with an image attached almost useless. It will randomly take more or less time to attach a photos, and there is no correlation to how many 'greyed out' photos when you try to send a message. Sometimes all thumbnails are visible, and sometimes all recently taken photos are grey.
Please let me know if I can get you any other info to help this one along, there are a few threads with this issue so clearly lots of folks are affected. The other thread was marked as solved, although all users state that it was not solved.
Thanks in advance.
Yeah I've been dealing with this for two years now.
I thought it was maybe the file size, but they're always under 5mb, my phone receives messages just fine, it's definitely something to do with the pre-loading of the thumbnail onto the attachment. Like someone futzed with a line around that area and never corrected the coding.
It's a major pain when trying to send photos to my boss, he wants confirmation photos constantly and I have to wait anywhere between 5 and 15 minutes just to send them out. Sometimes if I close the app and restart it, it might bring it back up sooner, but honestly I think that's just placebo, giving me something to do while I wait, because I'll usually have to restart the app well over ten times before anything loads in.
