    Does anyone know how to send gifs? Every time I try the gif gets sent as a still image. I'm not sure it is possible at this point. Any help would be appreciated!

    It depends on what you're viewing it in. A moving gif is just a series of still pictures and instructions for how fast to show them. A web browser can show them, an app like Gallery will show just the first still.

    Just downloaded a newer messaging app from the Play Store called EvolveSMS, one of the unlockable features is the ability to attach a gif to a message. Don't know if it actually works but just thought I would let you know. Really liking the app in general, especially since I normally avoid third party messaging apps.
