Samsung s20 sms messages require tap to download

Issue Description

We have two Samsung S20 phones. One works fine, the other requires “tap to download” for Messages (SMS ) Using the Google Messages (Not Samsung). However, “tap to download” is not working. I have restarted the phone several times. Driving me nuts !!
Thanks, Norm

I think this is happening because the group I was in had the wrong phone number. Whatever the number is that was originally associated with the account vs my real phone number. New group with correct number seems to be working. Thanks.

Just go a message from someone else with “tap to download” and it will not download. Problem is still there.

Thank you for your response. I will give it a try.
