    So I received a pic via Android Messenger app. I'd like to forward it via email. But I can't figure out where that pic is being stored on the phone.

    It's a Motorola Triumph.

    TIA.

    If by Android messenger app, you mean the stock messenger app, the pictures are probably being stored on your memory card.

    Open the gallery and you should see the picture*

    *I hope the Motorola's are like the EVOs in this case.

    Yes, stock messenger app that came on the phone.

    I looked in the SD and the phone gallery. No dice, no pics sent to the phone via text message are there.

    Thanks, though.

    When I get a pic msg on my desire hd I have to long press on the image in the message and two options come up for me, save image and view. When I click save image it saves it to the sd in the downloads folder. Then I can share the pic any which way. Hope that helps and it's the same on your phone.

    I assumed you'd already download the picture to the memory card since your inital OP says you cannot figure where the picture is stored.
