On my HTC One V often if someone sends a picture message it will only download if I change the network type to WCDMA from GSM/WCDMA Auto or vice versa. Why is this?

Your one V is malfunctioning. If you've never done so I'd recommend hitting it with something large and heavy. Or performing a factory reset..

Before you do either, make sure the back is on properly as the antenna is located in it.

You should seriously consider an upgrade, even today's low end androids are miles ahead of the One V

Thanks, you are probably right that it is malfunctioning. I have been threatening to get a new phone. I did do a factory reset but it didn't help. (I edited this post to say that, but after your reply)
