From one particular friend on Sprint, when she sends me pic in a text, the message comes in as a video. That is, there is a large "play" button above the text message itself. When I touch the play button, the screen goes black with the text portion of the message and then is followed by the pic for a few seconds and then, ultimately, returns to the message conversation screen. If I touch the screen during playback, a progress bar and pause button appear so, I can pause on the pic but, then I have no ability to zoom, etc.
We tested this on my sons's droid and his reacts exactly the same way when receiving texts from my friends phone. Then, we tested on my daughter's enV touch and the pics are received normally, as pics.
Anybody else experiencing pics arriving in a small video or slide show type format? I called Verizon and of course, they've never heard of it and it must be her Sprint phone. The rep couldn't grasp that it doesn't happen to anyone else she knows with any other phone and that it happens on both my and my son's droids.
Any help would be appreciated!!
