    When I receive picture messages from friends, it shows up as a video, is there a way to make it display as a picture, I can always save it into my gallery as a picture, so I can zoom and all, but that can get annoying.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Well you don't say how you have been sent the pictures but, I would say if it is email, or messaging you tap on the phot and it should download, then go to "my files", look under "downloads"...select the picture, hit menu, move, and navigate to the external sd card folder you want to drop them into and it wll migrate them over for you.

    To the OP, I'm not sure why but mine does the same thing...I'll look into it and try to get back to you.

    this is normal behavior. all pictures recieved in a text message show as the video.

    there is no way around it.

    this is the only thing i hate about this phone.

    Once ICS is released it will allow pics to show up the normal way as of right now no way around it.

    I use go SMS pro instead of the stock messaging app. That fixed the problem
