    I just returned to Android after IOS, I've had Android before with the same problem. I get picture messages on my Note 2 and they come in smaller than the screen and come in as a video? ? I can't super size them without saving them to my phone or Sd card and I hate doing all that to see a picture that I don't wanna save our keep. Weird thing is a majority of the photos do this but some come through as normal large photos. Anyway to alleviate this problem? I'll use the search function when I can get deeper into all the threads. Thanks for all the help, Ron

    I have the exact same problem on my Note II freakin annoying..
    I installed Handcent app but still have to save then open..
  3. It's doing that because you are sending/receiving pictures with text so it makes it a stupid slide show. You have to send/receive pictures with no text for them to go full screen. If you want to see pictures full screen you can't send/receive them with text. Nothing you can really do if other people send pictures with text though.

    I went and checked and you're correct. I do have one or two texts that are small and slide show format with no text in it??? It did this with my HTC a few years ago and drove me nut's, lol. I'll have to live with it I guess.:D

    To fix this install Go SMS. It works great and your pics come like they should. Yes I agree the default for how pics come is annoying in the default text app.

    I tired a bunch of SMS apps today because of this problem. I didn't like any of them except chomp SMS. It doesn't do any of this converting crap and its free. It has a very iOS feel to it, which I like. Its one of the only things I miss from my iPhone 5.

    Me too :D I won't be going back to IOS unless they do a major upgrade to the IOS system. iPhone isn't fun unless it's jailbroken.

    Download Go SMS Pro
    Download Go SMS Emoji Plugin
    Select iPhone Theme
    Set MMS Settings -> Max MMS size to 5Mb
    Check Preserve image resolution
    Set Send Settings -> Check MMS Group Chat

    Now your Go SMS app would act just like the iPhone message app. :p And your group chat will work with all your iPhones friends.
