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).
I also downloaded Chomp SMS which seems to receive them correctly
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..
appears as pictures to me...
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
