Some Texts Require Downloading

Hello, I have a Moto x4 and my wife has a Moto g7 Power. Both phones require some text messages to be downloaded to read them. We experience this in Florida, whether on Wifi or cell, but not in Michigan at all. We both are on My Choice Plans. Is there a way to not require downloading? Thanks!

Are you using the Messages app :messages: ?

If so, open the app and navigate to the screen where you see all your messages, not just those from a single contact.
Tap the three-dot icon :dots: at top right
Tap Settings
Tap Advanced
Look for auto-download MMS and Auto-download MMS when roaming, and make sure both are turned on.
