    Is there anyway I can send Messages containing GIF images that wont act as a still image when I send it? I know I can use Quickpic to view gif images but I just dont know how to send them. Im one of those gif creators that likes to make funny pics and all, I really need to know if there is any way. This is basically one problem that bothers me.. A LOT.

    I think if you use the stock text app, the photos just look and show like they are still images, but are actually sent as gifs...though I can't be sure. I know that whenever I send a normal jpeg it says it compresses because the file is too large, and gif are obviously larger. :thinking: lol. Oh well try another app, like GoSMS, it's very customization oriented and I know there is a setting to change attachment size, maybe there is something for specific formats. :)
    Anyways, I hope you get it working. Have a nice day.
