    When sometime sends me a video in a text, it will download it but it will only be a still frame that is played the whole time. That's using handcent and the stock app

    Are you connected via Wi-Fi or 3G/4G? I'm only able to download and play via 3G / 4G.

    4G. My boyfriend bionic is the same way. I can send to other phone types like 3G and other service providers but 4G phones can't play them.

    Try downloading mx player from the app store and see that will play them. Also, are these videos sent from an iphone by chance?

    No but i solved this problem. When you send text with a video, it won't play, but if they or i send just the video with no text or signature, it works. I tested different videos with different ppl. Text is messing them up

    I've had problems when iphone people send me pictures it plays like a video, and videos come up like pictures. But otherwise no problem. On the custom rom I'm running the stock video player freezes, do I use mx player instead. So crazy things happen sometimes
