    Anyone know how to save a picture someone has sent you through a text on the G1? I have clicked on everything and I can't seem to find a "save picture" option. Any help?:confused:

    Have you tried pressing and holding on the picture? I don't know if that would work, but it might!

    This has been mentioned in various threads including one that I started myself. I have not seen a response yet as to how to do this. Currently the work around is to forward the message to your email account and download the picture onto the device. This may work for now but I would really like to be able to save them directly from the MMS.

    ok, so running Gingerbread on Samsung Galaxy SII.

    The way I was able to save the image, was the press (and hold) the picture INSIDE the text message. Then a menu popped up, and one option is "Attached items".

    This will not work if you already clicked on the image in the message (to get a full screen). You must do it from the the actual 'text message screen' and not the 'i already clicked on the image in the text message, and its in full-screen mode" screen. :)

    Let me know if that works.

    I have a G1 and it worked. Don't open the photo in the text message, just open the thread and touch the pic in the message a menu will pop up. 1st option save image to SD card....

    I have a droid turbo, I have no problem saving the pic from text messaging, but I don't know WHERE the pics are saved (stored). I save them, but I can't find them on my phone. Help!!!

    I have had the same issue. I hold down the message bubble, not the photo itself. It checks and gives prompts. I choose download. I am running lollipop and this is not a samsung device. When I go to my apps there is an icon named file manager. I open this and find a picture folder. When i select each picture individually, I can then choose share (the funny v with circles at three points). My options then are mail, messaging, drive, photos etc. I hope this helps.
