Poor grammar in MMS error message
Bug 1057973 has exposed some poor grammar in an error message. The language does not make it clear that the user should follow the link. This message should be revised to be clearer to the user.
This message was created from carrier-side as the message body of the MMS notification.

Sorry, after checking the screenshot, I just realized it's the MMS notification displayed in the SMS App with the locale in: https://github.com/mozilla-b2g/gaia/blob/aa72df680c56bad1507ca0ee2d640d300fe91a1d/apps/sms/locales/sms.en-US.properties#L224

Hey Jenny, what do you think of this feedback?
Hi Matej, could you take a look at the string issue described here? Thanks!

(In reply to Jenny Lee from comment #4) > Hi Matej, could you take a look at the string issue described here? Thanks! I'm not sure I totally understand. It seems pretty clear to me that you're supposed to click on "Download" as a next step. Here's one thought about how to clarify it even more, though: "You can use the link below to download this attachment until Thursday, Aug. 28." One other thing: "Aug." needs a period if we're using the abbreviation.
NI stas about the "Aug." issue since we're using l10n stuff for this.
I think we should file a separate bug to fix the month (and possibly days?) abbreviations. It should be as simple as changing the following en-US values: https://github.com/mozilla-b2g/gaia/blob/d69f170bf90d496c5f26b0f5c0a000922a323fbd/shared/locales/date/date.en-US.properties#L47-L58 Since it's not a semantic change, the string identifiers should stay the same.
Filed bug 1083300 for this last issue.
Matej, how about something like: "You received a multimedia message, you can use the link below to download its content until Thursday, Aug. 28." ? I try to avoid using the word "attachment" because actually a MMS can have a subject and no attachment (quite common), or even just text (quite uncommon).
(In reply to Julien Wajsberg [:julienw] from comment #9) > Matej, how about something like: "You received a multimedia message, you can > use the link below to download its content until Thursday, Aug. 28." ? Looks good, but it needs to be two sentences: You received a multimedia message. You can use the link below to download its content until Thursday, Aug. 28.
Thanks Matej. I'm making this a mentored bug. We need to change the value for not-downloaded-attachment in the locale properties file in sms.en_US.properties. Because we change the value we also needs to change the key, and as a result we need to change the code that uses it in thread_ui.js and the unit test in thread_ui_test.js. You can test the code in Firefox by following the steps in , and opening the thread for "Tom O'Hare" that has some "not-downloaded" MMS.  https://github.com/julienw/gaia/blob/1082618-sms-readme/apps/sms/README.md
