Zenfone 8 MMS Issue - Can't download/view images in Messages app

Star II
I cannot seem to view MMS images in the Messages app on my new Zenfone 8. I checked my APN settings and they all seem correct. I know I have received the MMS as there is a a "Download" button for the message but when I press it nothing happens. Is this a known issue withthe Zenfone 8 and is there a fix or workaround as it is very annoying.

I too am having the same issue.
I also have another sim on the way from Vaya.

I'd be careful doing that, you may find the same problem

I've tested three. Aldi doesn't work. Belong and Telstra do. Doesn't help much when I'm on Optus though.

Hey Guys,
Reached Coles Mobile & as expected I got told get a different phone or speak to ASUS to fix their software. I bet its the APN Settings but can't seem to find a fix ATM
