    If I am not mistaken, Android devices do not play animated GIFs; they just display the first frame.

    In Greek mythology Iris is the personification of the rainbow and messenger of the gods.

    I put a gif on my Eris and it works, it just doesn't automatically play it , it shows up almost as a movie with the big play button but doesn't open with a time bar or anything just looks like a a normal gif , and it's downloaded as a gif..

    How double you go about doing this then? Sounds like most people can't play gifs also. I get a lot of text messages that have jokes attachments like gifs. Wtf.....our Eris can't play gifs but my 6 year old "dumb" flip phone could. Does anyone else feel there is something wrong with this picture?!?

    I'm with you. I love alot of the things the Eris can do - but the texting and phone functions are poor compared to my previous phones. I still wouldn't give up my Eris, but it would be nice if some updates could help solve problems like this.
