Help Samsung 551 SMS/Text Message


I've been having some troubles with my phone. First of all, how exactly do you open picture files? I tried holding on the screen, pressing the left option button but nothing seems to work. Recently, since I don't have data plan, I decided to sync my gmail to phone so i can recieve my emails as text messages on my phone. It worked with my previous phone but this time when I try to look and enter the verify code, I can't see it... instead of seeing the code as 12345456 or something like that the code on my sms is like (12345...) and I can't expand that whatsoever. tried holding and that didn't work.. anyone knows how to fix this?
