MMS Problem with some phones

I am having problems getting MMS messages from some phones. The message comes through but when I tap to see the picture it, I get " message not available or expired".  If I turn the phone off and back on, it appears. It is really strange as I thought it may be just from I phones, but  one was from a Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Yet from Oppo and other Samsung phones they have just come straight through. 

I have checked my settings, all good, I have sent myself a picture, all good, I have sent picture to 17667, all good! I can send MMS, its just receiving them from some phones.

I have a NOKIA 8 with Android 9. Any thoughts, has anyone else encountered this? 

Was this helpful?
