    I get a lot of forwarded picture messages. For some reason they show up with a play symbol on them like they are a slideshow or video. Is there something I can do to just make them show up as a picture?

    Thank you for taking the time to try to help. Long pressing on the play symbol doesnt do anything, the border turns yellow and it just sits there until I let it go. Then it opens it in the slideshow mode again. Why do they show up like this?

    I just realized that I have to long press on the row the play symbol is in not on the actual play symbol and I get a save to SD card option. That is great, but I am still wondering why it just would not show up inline like every other phone in the world, why would it think a photo is a slideshow?!?

    BTW, thanks for your help.

    It is a strange setup. Is there a way to turn off the slideshow so picture messages send and recieve like other phones?
