    Question Problems saving pictures from text

    I cannot figure out how to save pictures sent to me through text messages.
    I was able to save one, but on others from the same person it will only allow me to save to screen saver or contact . I want to save all to my phone .
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you

    Are you taking the picture in portrait mode or horizontally?
    You may need to rotate the picture, resave it and then repost it. Hopefully someone can come up with a better suggestion for you.
    Otherwise, you may need to add your profile pic via pc....but I'm sure there's a simple fix.
    Good luck!

    Hi, tried both with no success. Spotted a question on Google with an answer from a mod saying this will be fixed 4th week in October. Now lost the article

    Lilybug, Welcome! Did you ever get it figured out?

    If not, from your text app. where you have the string of texts, Long press on the picture and an option to save attachment should pop up for you.
    Let us know if you get it working.

    Are you using the stock messaging app? That's what I use and if I long press on the picture a menu pops up. One of the options is save attachment.

    To Duncan, if u take the picture in landscape (phone turned to the side ) it should load correctly. But if u take the pic in portrait (phone vertical) it will turn, had the same issue posting on another site.

    Lillybug, just as previously stated, I find it easier to use the stock messenger to save pics as it goes straight to the gallery. Just got to stock messenger long press the pic menu pops up save attachment and viola'

    Mine did this also.... Just when I thought I had figured out why it rotated some pictures it would all change again.. It had no bearing on which way I held the camera or anything else... It just flipped some of them.... I just always flipped them in the gallery the way I wanted them after I took them..... But if someone does find a definitive answer I too would like to know...
