    What firmware version are you on?

    What error message do you get (if any)?

  • On 30.11.51.115 ..i just bought the phone i installed everything after i updated to latest version

  • *Fail to download attachment pls try again later. *

  • Did you try toggling file access permission for Gmail app?

  • Yes. I tried many way. But still can't. The only way i didn't try was reset my phone. Coz this is my main phone.

  • Afair last time when I had problems with attachments in Gmail happened after I disabled background data for downloader app. Check if you have any restrictions for background data transfer

  • I set to enable already. But problem still exists

    Go to apps in settings and find Gmail. You should be able to uninstall updates when you press on the 3 dots top right of the screen. Once done, clear cache and data.

    Give this a try and let us know how you get on.

  • I'm not the OP, but I also have this problem - gmail says "Failed to download the attachment. Please try again". Brand new Zenfone 8, 30.11.51.115 software, and have tried the following:

    • Added file/media permission to Gmail (interestingly, I was not prompted for this, I had to go to Settings->Apps->Permissions to allow it). No change.
    • Clearing Gmail cache & data. No change.
    • Removing Gmail updates (back to factory version). Clear data & cache. No change.
    • Made sure background data & unrestricted data usage enabled for Gmail. No change.
    • Made sure background data & unrestricted data usage enabled for Download manager. No change.
    • Of course rebooting the phone. No change.
    • Removed my google account from the phone and then added it back. No change.
    • Tried my wife's gmail account, still can't download attachments. No change.
    • Confirmed I can successfully download this attachment via desktop PC Gmail and also via third party Android mail apps.

    I captured the logcat messages that occur when gmail tries to save the attachment, as shown below. Any suggestions???

  • I downloaded Microsoft outlook to use for my main email app. Perfect..


  • Hi @Billy768 @stevenclin,

    I will send you both a PM, check your personal Zentalk inbox ;)

  • Hi @Billy768 @stevenclin,

    Please try to factory reset your device, this should fix this issue.

    Let me know if persists.

  • Hi @Irene2_ASUS - thanks for the quick response. Is there something specific in the logs I sent that you are sure a factory reset will fix the issue? Or is this just a general suggestion?

    I have only had the phone about 10 days, but spent about a week configuring it as desired, copying pictures & messages from my old phone, etc. So (a) it will be a major inconvenience to reset, and (b) I have only had the phone a short time; it's not like there have been a large number of updates or apps installed/uninstalled, etc. that would cause one to think a full factory reset would be required.

    So unless there is a specific reason to believe a reset will definitely fix the issue, I agree with @Billy768 that factory reset is not appealing!

  • I have factory reset my phone ytd. Really fix it. But really inconvenient...I spend 2 hours to reinstall all my thing.

  • @Billy768 - thanks for following up and saying that it worked for you. After seeing your post, I went ahead and reset my phone too, and it worked for me as well (now I just have to spend the time to restore all my settings, etc.)

    Wish I knew what actually happened so that I could be sure not to do it again - I hope I don't have to reset my phone every few weeks!

    But thanks to both you and @Irene2_ASUS !
