    Sorry if this has been covered but I couldn't find it on search.

    I want to save a picture from a MMS to my external sd card.

    I am running Gingerbread (2.3.6) and when I long press a MMS with pic I get the following options: Delete, Lock, Attached items, Forward, & View message details. When I click on Attached items I get a menu with the pic name, a check box, and save & cancel buttons. When I save the pic it is saved in my phone. /sdcard/download

    I want to save it to my external sd card. /sdcard/external_sd/download

    How do I do that? I've looked in the following locations but there are not any selections to change the storage location!! :mad:

    Messaging -> Menu -> Settings
    Phone -> Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications -> Messaging

    I don't think the default messaging app has the options to change save locations. You can either save it to the default and move it or look at different messaging apps, although I don't know a any specific one that has the feature that you're looking for.

    When you have the photo loaded in mms, click on menu button, it will bring up a menu of several options. Click on attached items., then a screen will pop up, click on it and it will be saved to SD card. Then go to gallery and you will see it. Also it will still be in mms, and you can delete it from there after making sure its in your gallery.

    Hope this helps
