MMS 'Cannot get MMS' Notification

This can occur if another SMS/MMS app is installed and is in effect hijacking the incoming MMS (it fails as it's not the default app) but then the MMS is gone and thus Textra keeps raising a 'Cannot get MMS...' notification.

Do you have any other SMS/MMS apps installed? (if so you need to uninstall them and swipe to clear that notification. Send yourself a pic to test it's all OK now). Check in the Android stock / system messaging app to ensure MMS > Auto-Retrieve is OFF.

Note: on occasions the MMS content is corrupted on your carriers server, so you may need to right swipe this away to ignore it.
