    Long press on the image and you should get a menu with an option to save. Are you not getting that? What messaging app are you using? Depending on the app it may not specifically say "Save image". On Handcent it says "Copy attachment to SD card".

    make sure you are not actually in the gallery or viewing the image. You need to be in your messaging app showing all of you messages, then long press to get the save option.
