    I know this is probably an easy fix for you guys but it is driving me nuts. For some reason when I am sent a picture msg it plays as video instead of letting me view or save the pic. Is there something in settings I need to change or is this something I have to live with?

    Thanks in advance!

    I think it just has to do with the way the person sent it. When I get pictures from my friend on at&t with an iPhone it always displays as a video. When I get one from my fiance who is Verizon they display as pics. I don't think there's anything you can do about it.

    I have noticed the same thing. It has to do with the way the pics are sent. Still bugs me though.

    It bothers me too. Sometimes my buddy sends me pics that play as slideshows, but when my girlfriend sends me pics it doesn't.
    I sent a pic to myself via email and it appeared as a slideshow. I don't get it either.
