    Someone sent me a picture attached to a text message. With my old phone I could save these pictures to the memory card and transfer them off of the phone. I can't find a way to save the picture to the Droid, and connecting the phone to my PC and browsing the contents of the Droid doesn't reveal the picture anywhere.

    Suggestions? Is this impossible?

    Thanks Bramsy. I'd tried that. Pressing and holding the picture does the same thing as pressing it quickly -- when I take my finger off the icon for the picture it shows the picture briefly, then shows the caption that originally accomanied it when it went to the person who forwarded it to me. I get no options for saving. :(

    I have the stock messaging that comes with the phone. If I long press the picture that is sent to me in a text message it will bring up another menu and I can then save it to my SD card. No additional app is needed. Just remember to long press the picture to get that other menu to pop up.

    Long pressing the picture didn't work for me. Long pressing an area of the message that was *not* the picture brought up options, including saving attachment to SD card.

    Thanks everyone. :)
