    On a Samsung Fascinate (not sure if that is relevant) does anyone know how to make pictures that come in to a text message just show up in the message. I got my first incoming text on this phone with a picture attached. I saw the message and a "play" button. Push the button, goes to a screen 1/2 which just has the text itself (which I have already read at this point in the original bubble), then sits for a few seconds, then finally goes to screen 2/2, pulls up the picture, with no text. If I go back to the original message, the play button is still there and I have to go through it all over again. Any setting/apps anyone knows of to just have the picture come up automatically as part of the text.

    I am coming from a Palm Pre and the photo would just be sitting there when I opened the message.

    Thanks!

    If it is a picture that you intend to keep, I just long press the picture and save it. I know that does not answer your question, but maybe it gives you an option.

    This same thing happened to me!!! I asked a friend to send me a picture she liked of herself to set as her contact photo (I had come to the Galaxy without transferring any of my pix from my Dare, so I was starting fresh)... and the "photo" she sent me had an arrow in it (which to me symbolizes a video clip), and just like you said... with five seconds of play....??? I asked her, and she said, "No, I sent you a photo, not a video"... so ???? hmmmm

    Well, it wasn't a picture with an arrow in it, like you said that looks like a video clip, there was ONLY an arrow - when I pushed the arrow it eventually took me to the picture. That is what is annoying, with my old phone the picture was just there, as part of the text already open.

    You can save all attachments in a text, by long pressing BESIDE the actual photo with an arrow. In other words, dont long press the actual photo, long press to the right of it. It will bring up an option to save all attachments. This happens a lot with forwared messages. Or messages with multiple photos/videos.

    Is it in your gallery but in a folder called download? I think thats where my picture downloads go...

    How about searching on your SDcard?

    I have the same problem. All i want to do is get the pictures in the gallery. I can handle everything from there.

    Still no answer as to how to have a pic simply appear in a text and not in the form of a slideshow
