    Firstly I have the Motorola Droid

    My issue is this: When in the messaging app, and in text message conversations I am having many issues.

    1st issue: conversations or "threads" as it is put are seperated, which I like this option, but it also makes it an issue.
    I am unable to forward any messages I receive.

    2nd issue: attachments in messages are not accessable, or able to be saved.
    I can not save photos, video, music, files ect.
    I can not set any attachments as ringtones, screen savers, backgrounds.
    And I can not forward any of the information that is included in a text.

    I have become very frustrated with the Droid, I thought this was a great phone but seems for the pricetag and hype, I am unable to do less with it as simple functions that I had on my previous phone the LG Chocolate.

    I can not save anything I receive, and I also can not send any of my music files or recordings as an attachment.

    I may not have this whole Droid thing figured out, but I dont want it to take me a month to figure it out. And it seems like I am going past my "Worry Free" period of time.

    I was unable to save many of my items from old phone to Droid, and that was a bother.

    But the text messaging is my biggest complaint, I liked the ability to save sounds, forwards sounds photos ect. And I can not do this now with the Droid, is there a way to fix this issue?

    Half the fun of a new device is learning how to use it and sometimes there is a steep learning curve to go along with it. When I switched from PCs to Macs years ago, man I was lost. I thought I'd be returning it for sure. The first thing I needed to do was keep reminding myself, it's not a PC.

    Sorry for not being much help with your problem, as I am new to this Android stuff myself and have not gotten any media texts yet to play around with.

    I do see an option to add attachments to a text message, hitting the menu button while in the text thread.

    If you long press on the particular message in the thread, it will give you the option to forward it.
