    Why do pic messages show up as video sometimes?

    Hey Guys,

    Sometimes I get pic messages but it appears in the Messaging screen as a video. You hit 'play' and it plays for like 10 seconds then closes even though it's a still photo.

    Seems to be random, and I can't find a way to save the 'video' so that I can view it as a photo.

    Any ideas?

    Andy

    Have had the exact same thing happen on occasion. Seems like they are always from my wife, and always her forwarding a text she received from someone else. (Usually of an adult nature lol) She's on an old flip phone.

    It is a conversation bug from older phones that send the picture in a 2gp format instead of png/jpg.
    Facts are the very first casuality of bad information.

    It is playing the picture as a slide show not a video. But since there is only one picture it does not change. Once the slide show is over is closes and goes back to the text msg. when you open it you can tap the screen and hit the pause button at the bottom.

    Is there a way to save the slideshow to sd?

    -EDIT-
    Just downloaded the Save MMS app. It saves the pictures that appear as videos easily
