    Ok new to this bought an S3 today - one problem seems to be a common one, reveiving images as Slideshows rather than as single images. But another one I have is that I can't get images from a friends iPhone, asks me to download and then says it can't....any help out there

    also haven't tried so far but can you save images in the gallary in different folders (so i can hide some from easy viewing)

    Hi harryhoudini, and welcome to AF :)

    I don't know the S3 myself, so its messaging app may have different options to mine. But once you have saved an image you can move it wherever you like. If there isn't a file manager on the phone then just download one from the Play Store (I use ES File Explorer myself, but there are many others).

    I barely use MMS, but one problem people often have when moving from iPhone to Android is that their friends are still trying to use iPhone-only messaging methods, often without realising. Otherwise I guess check image sizes and the settings of your message app, but if the problem is only with an iPhone owner it may be worth looking at what they are doing.

    Good luck, and welcome again :)
