Default Getting pictures by text

Whenever pictures are sent to me my phone reads them as videos. Is there a way I can fix this?

Its been noted before on here....
I got a couple pictures as "videos" too. But if you press on it, and save, it will save as a jpg. Dunno why the phone presents it as if it were a video though. Some quirk of Samsungs or Android (not sure which).

Standard android message apps view pictures as if its a video. Try different messenger apps from the market.

I've tried about 3 different texting apps they all do this. And if someone sends me 2 or more pics it turns them into a slideshow, and you can't skip to the next pic you have to wait like 8 seconds in between. This is a big draw back... They better have an update to fix the issue soon. Having MMS problems is pretty embarrassing in 2011..

They appears as pictures but play like a video. In otherwards you have to wait for so many seconds before being able to see the other one.

Att/android reads it as a "multi media message"

As mentioned...long press and save or look into alternative messaging apps like handcent or chomp
