    Default Picture messages showing up as a video?

    I noticed when someone sends me a picture message it comes through as a video. Anyone else notice this?

    you mean that it has a sort of play progress bar on the bottom and plays it when you view the picture?

    If so, that's a normal thing with AT&T related phones

    MIne does the same. Haven't figured out to save the pics that were sent on this one like I did on my last phone. Guess I have some reading to do.

    That is one thing I miss about my iPhone then. Pictures were pictures. This is about half ******ed.

    I had it on my "featurephone" that was on AT&T too. I mean other than the odd looking bar and puzzling look you have when you first see it, it works just like any other multimedia message attachment. Saves as a pic just fine for me.

    Just gotta get used to it and it won't be a bother.

    After the" video" is finished playing and it moves to the next screen where the smaller pic shows up, press and hold on the pic. You will be prompted with choices to view, save, etc.

    I always had that same issue with AT&T, Never with Verizon though. Not sure why that is.

    I thought the same thing.. but I've found a fix for this issue.

    When you receive a pic, hold long on it and a menu will come up, choose view picture and the picture will be shown by itself.. Looks better, works better, and most importantly a legit solution.
