    i had a similar issue with my galaxy s II skyrocket. I searched online a bit and i found somewhere that if i shut off wifi , and just let the 3g/4g network download it then it would work. I tried it, and it did. Give it a shot.

    THANK YOU! This worked perfectly. I also disabled auto retrieve to get individual download buttons (using another forum tip). So together I get
    to control the downloads (and 3G/4G usuage) and actually get to see the picture.
