Why won't small files download in Android Messenger on UMX 673c?

Certain files received while on android messenger wont open(dl) phone says I need to install sd card???




Hey Gary. If you're thinking of storage for your personal files (images, videos, audio), what you're looking for is a microSD card. According to your phone's specs, it should be able to use microSD card of up to 64 GB.


But if I'm wrong and you're looking for a SIM with more storage. The most you can get is a 128k SIM. If you're purpose is to backup your contacts and messages, I suggest that you use apps like SMS Backup & Restore (link) to back up your messages and simply sync your phone contacts to your Google account for back up.


In my experience, I can't remember the last time I used a SIM to store contacts and messages, I always do it on the cloud.


HEY CARL....PREMATURE ON MY LAST ENTRY. THE UPDATE I RECEIVED SEEMED TO WORK A CPLE OF TIMES AND THEN BACK TO THE WAY IT WAS.THIS IS A GOV,T FUNDED PHONE AND AFTER MORE INQUIRY I WAS TOLD THE  SIM CARD IS ONLY MADE FOR A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF MEMORY? MY NEW QUESTION IS ....IS THERE ANY WAY REPLACE SIM CARD WITH A BETTER ONE WHILE STILL STAYING WITH THE SAME CARRIER?


That's awesome! Glad the problem is fixed. Thanks for sharing how you fixed it.


HEY CARL, I AM ABLE TO DL ANY FILE IF IT IS EMAILED ...STORAGE WAS NOT THE PROBLEM. I DIDI CALL MY PROVIDER AND THEY SENT ME  A PRL UPDATE WHICH SEEMS TO HAVE DONE THE TRICK!....TY FOR YOUR  HELP


And by the way, does this happen to all files you try to download even on different sites?


Hi there Gary. How much phone storage do you have left? Maybe you have almosy full that's why even a small file won't download.
