    Looked around here and did not see these issues answered..

    Using the stock SMS app, I receive pictures via text msg but I cannot find an option to save it to my gallery (Or anywhere for that matter). Only option is to "Set picture as".

    Is it possible to save pics from text msgs and if so how..

    Also, I get some pics where I can just touch them and I can resize on the fly etc (The ones I cannot save) ... and some I get when you touch them, it kinda looks like a video player pops up with the pic and a 5-6 second play bar runs left to right like I am playing a video clip but it is a picture only.

    Anyone know what type of picture that is and why I am getting those? Very annoying..

    Any help with these two questions/issues would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Don't click on the picture to view it big. Instead, press and hold the picture in the view where you see the message and click 'Save attachment'. Check teh box for the title of the picture and click Save, and it will save it to the SD Card.
