Why do mms (pictures in text) come in as slideshow?

I never had this issue on the pre or any other phone but when friends send me pics they come as a slideshow which need to be played, than downloaded as a pic, its super annoying, is this a bug or?

I have to agree with you, this slideshow thing sucks. It also makes it a pain when trying to forward MMS messages. I was hoping there was an alternative but haven't seen anything to help/fix this annoyance.

The auto resizing is annoying also. Good options are missing from this app.

Yea the slide show thing is dumb. Is there any fix? Also seems like sometimes when I send a video the receiver gets unable to view. I guess there's a file size limit?

I have my tp2 right here and it does use the slide show but I dont think it kicks you out of the message.

I noticed this as well, but I haven't had the problem since I switched to handcent. On top of solving that issue, it's got plenty of other nice features..

I use handcent and when I get a picture I'm pretty sure it comes it as a slide show. Is there a setting to change that?

I don't think I have anything special set. The messages are set to auto download, but other than that I haven't changed any settings. I will check it out more thoroughly when I get home and have more time to mess with it.

My biggest gripe with it is the 5 second thing with it. If you only get one picture, you can only look at it for 5 seconds until the slideshow closes and goes back to the message.

You can tap on the picture quickly, and hit pause. I know, not the easiest thing, but gets around the 5 second deal.

I blieve you can change the 5 second rule in the options somewhere. I agree...the whole thing is retarded. Really? I have to tap the screen and hit 'pause' to see a picture mail? Really?

I think sometimes if not all the time you have to download the picture then wait for it load. Never had to do that with the Pre. The picture would be right there when you receive the text.
