Default Problem with pic messages

Hi guys.
My problem is that whenever I receive or send a pic message, my phone interprets the picture as a video. Most of the time it's a 10-20 second video with only the picture, but sometimes the first 10 seconds are a blank screen and the last 10 are the picture. It's really annoying to have to play the video and wait for the first 10 seconds to pass by just to see the picture I'm receiving. Is there any way I can make my phone see pictures as pictures and not videos?

Thanks in advance!

Save the picture to your phone and try to open it in the gallery?

That would be a good idea, but I'd like to be able to see the picture in the conversation without having to play the video and without the big play button on it.

I'm having the same exact problem and it's driving me crazy. I have to ask my friends to e-mail the photo to me instead of just sending a picture text. I have the Samsung Galaxy S2 from AT&T. Has anyone solved this issue? Everytime some sends me a picture text, when I click it, it plays like a video file, AND IT'S ONLY A PICTURE!

It also happens when I send a picture.

Don't want to bother anyone by bumping this thread back up, but this is the exact issue I'm talking about here http://www.galaxys2forums.com/samsun...xt-attachment/

To bump an old thread, it's apparently something to do with Android, I may be wrong but it is what I've been told.

In that case then other OEM's must remove the feature because neither my Xperia X10 on Android 2.3 nor my girlfriends HTC Sensation do this???

I finally figured it out! Hit the menu button and select "Attached items". You will see a file, mine are tempimage.jpg. You can check it and then save. HTH!
