    So everytime i get a pic message they are so tiny even when i click on then the pictures are still small i tilt the screen sideways they are still small and i can't zoom in on the pictures. I upgraded to this phone from an htc inspire and had no issues with photo text being super small.

    How can i have picture messages that people send my be at least half the screen size and allow me to be able to zoom in on them?

    I think your issue is that you need to DL the pic to your phone by saving it.
    Hold your finger on the pic and it will ask you to save...

    Well that's crazy.. every other phone i've owned the pics came in normal size and i was able to zoom. So your logic is flawed unless Samsung designed this phone to force the user to save the pic just to see it? That's strange! lol even my crappy htc inspire didn't force me to save pics just to see a larger version of them.

    Not sure why this is happening to you. Pics are fine for me.

    Is there any way to view the picture without the "slideshow" view?
