Default how to receive pictures from an iphone mms user

Ok, I hate iphones, and apple products.

But a few of my friends have iphones.

One friend in particular has an iphone, and we send pictures sometimes.

The problems is, every time he does, it comes in a slide show. One picture gets sent, and it takes about 5 seconds before I can see it, as it's showing a black slide, and then the picture shows.

It's a real small slideshow picture, and I've got no way to download it even. It's real annoying!

He kinda laughs and sometimes will just email it to me, like the way that iphone users had to send pictures before they got the ability to send mms messages.

How hard can this be? Is it something he is not doing right, or is it just some stupid way that iphones send mms messages to where only iphone users can properly use the photos?

Hi CirkDroid, I've moved your thread to the Android Lounge since your query pertains to Android
Sign up with Dropbox using my referral and get an additional 1/2GB on top of the 2GB you get for signing up http://db.tt/YbULMZX

Many thanks,

I don't have this issue but my friend who has an iphone tends to give me issues when sending MMS. I have to click download to view his pictures. Kinda annoying.
