Select the picture and hold until the menu pops up. You will then have an option to "copy attached to sd card". That's it.

That only works with the built-in Droid messenger not with Handcent... or at least I could not figure out how to do it with Handcent.

with Handcent just click on the Menu button and then click on save MMS. Any pictures in the text will be saved to your SD. Very easy.

What they said. Tap on the menu button, then click on save MMS. At the next screen, tap the menu button again and you will see the option to Copy attached to SD card.

I was having problems with the included messaging app when trying to send MMS to a number in a different area code. This appears to be experienced by other people as well. I have no problems sending pics in Handcent so it has to be an issue with the included app. Here's to hoping that it is fixed on Dec 11. Thanks for the intro to Handcent.

In the market there is an app called Save MMS. Download that to save MMS files. It tells you where it stores the MMS in the instructions.:)

Where does the picture get saved to on the SD Card with the stock Messaging app?

Also, I use Handcent and love it, but I haven't been able to save any pictures, not even with those instructions given by another member. Does anyone else have a way to save pictures with Handcent?

Thanks

In Handcent, all you do is "long press" on the picture you want to save...then select "Copy attached to SD Card" from the pop up menu...
