The problem is that supposedly before you can receive picture messages, you have to send one first. Tell a friend that you are going to test it out on them and send them a picture message. It will take a while for it to go through
Then all the texts that you receive before with the "download' button in them in the place of a picture automatically turn into pictures.
Unfortunately as it stands there is no functionality for saving your MMS pictures directly onto your phone, the only way it can be done is you have to forward the message to your Gmail account, which will then arrive on your phone and from there you should be able to open the email and download the picture. To do so follow these steps
From the Home screen, touch the Applications button.
Touch Messaging.
Touch the message that contains the picture or video.
Press and hold in an empty space in the message.
Touch Forward.
Type a space or other character in the forwarded message (in subject or body of message)
At To, type the e-mail address.
Press the Menu key and touch Send.
Once received in the email this can be saved but the problem is when saved it may save it without a file extension therefore making it unviewable later
This should help and do let me know

Picture on my text message(G1) to laptop (vista)


There are a few ways you can get your pictures from your G1 phone to your computer.

You will first need to long press on the picture message link in your text message. Select save to SD card. Do this for each one you want.

The first would be to simply connect your USB cable to your phone and then to your computer. You will get a message on your phone that it is connected to usb. pull down the notification bar and select usb notification and select mount. (I think that's what it say's (Thats what your doing anyway.)!).
you should then get a message on your computer that gives you opions. you can open up the folder and drag and drop the pictures were you want them on your hard drive or copy them and paste them were you want them.
If you have or if you download and install a great application called Google Picasa3 you will also have the option to import them to your computer. The nice option of using Picasa is the fact that it will only import the new pictures that you have not already imported and it is also a great program for viewing pictures and making modifications (adding text, taking out red eye and such).

Hope this helps.
Peace and Gods Blessings

Copying pictures to my g1 from my messages


There is an app in the Marketplace called Save MMS. Install this, and you should be able to save them right to your memory card.

Why cant my g1 download picture messages?


Have you tried turning your phone off? I know that with mine I dont turn it off for almost a week and my wi-fi goes screwy. Once i turn it off for 5 minutes the phone works like brand new. Also, you may want to check and see how large the picture is the G1 can only download a certain amount of mb (?) on a single message. Not an expert, hope this helps.

Pics being sent to me are going to album on G1


Check with G1 support at T-Mobile to see if the receivers information is being blocked from your service. They should be able to fix it on their end.
