    When I send or recieve MMS, it automatically changes it to a "slideshow" even when there's only 1 photo. Is there a way to change this so that it just shows as a JPG??

    Don't think you can change this in the stock app, try using Handcent from the Marketplace... that's what I'm using with no problem seeing jpeg's not a slideshow.

    Can't find Handsent in marketplace

    Tried a search & it keeps showing me SMS Androapps & the ratings for that one are bad

    Got it - Had to add SMS to it. Already downloaded it & my slideshows are now regular pics. Thanks.

    I installed Handcent and my mms pix are still slideshows, even with only 1 picture.

    I've had the same slideshow issue also. Must be tied to the new release of Froyo. Can't say it has cause any problems so far, but keeping an eye on it.

    A friend has the same version of Android as I but on a Droid, (I have Droid 2) his MMS doesn't have the slide show and shows pix inline with messages. My Build is "VZW" his build is "FRG22D"

    It may not cause a problem, but for me, it destroys the fun of Pix-ing if I only get to see the picture for 5 secods or I have to save the picture, then navigate to it to view it. :(

    Ok so I still wish I could turn off the slideshow, but I understand it now.

    I did some tests, it seems that a picture can be converted to a slideshow if there is text in the message area. Having a subject line does not affect it. This was the case when the image was sent from e-mail. When I txt myself from a mms phone, having text in the message area does cause the slideshow conversion.

    Additionally, if there is no text in the message area, but it was sent from e-mail or a message app set to HTML or Rich Text format, the picture will be converted to a slideshow. Probably due to unseen code in the message area.

    I found the reason of MMS slideshow and was able to recreate it multiple times.

    Using iPhone 4 I created message with photo in this order:
    1. Typed text
    2. Inserted picture (regardless from photo gallery or take it while crating a message)
    3. Press Send.

    The message comes as slide show.

    If I create message with photo in this order:
    1. Inserted picture (regardless from photo gallery or take it while crating a message)
    2. Typed text
    3. Press Send.

    The message comes as image with text below.

    I don't know if this is intentional or not. I asked my wife to remember to attach image first, then type text.

    Hope that helps.
