    Got my Droid Incredible yesterday and haven't done much else since then!
    I've figured out how to download picture attachments from my gmail, but not from a text? I've searched through all the user manuals (is it me or do they only state the obvious?) and can't figure it out. When I hold my finger on the image, I see menu selections flash quickly. I just want to be able to save them into my gallery!

    Does a long press on the picture not bring up additional options?

    I have a Moto Droid so my comments may not be applicable.

    When I receive a text with a photo, I simple long press (press and hold) on the photo. This opens a window with several options. To save, I tap Copy attached to SD card and my picture is saved to a file on my SD card called "downloads"

    Hope this helps.
