    I cannot for the life of me save a photo I received in an email. I get to the sharing window, but no save. I have tried everything that has always worked on my other 10 phones! I hold my finger on the pic and nada! This CANT be this difficult!! :( BTW, I have an Inspire 4G

    Are you using the stock email app?
    I haven't really used the stock email app since I have always used k-9 on my phones

    k-9 I think is way better than the stock app and easier to use once setup. For pics in k-9 once the pic is downloaded to the email there are 2 buttons next to the photo open or save.


    Edit: wait i think i remember answering this in another thread. After you download and open the photo to look at it when you then go to your gallery is it in there? I believe once you have downloaded it the phone automatically saves it.

    Guessing you are using the stock gallery as well. That like to play hide and seek with the pics from time to time. I would recommend using quickpic if you aren't already and see if those pics show up then.

    Sent another pic and realized that I never had the download arrow on the first pic! Just the paper clip for attachment. This one I sent had the download arrow and let me do just that! Weird but I should be OK. Maybe the first just got weird in the transition. Thanks!!
