After speaking to Orange it seems it is a problem with the S3 that all photos are sent as MMS therefore when received the other end they are in slideshow/video format and not a 'normal' photo. Has anyone else come across this and found a cure/fix? Orange suggested I downloaded an app for sending photos. Any suggestions on this please?
They are a normal photo but part of an MMS. What do you want the recipient to be able to do with the photo other than view it? They should be able to save the photo to the phone's memory. How they do that will depend on their phone.
You and the recipients may want to consider Whatsapp
Im having problems with recieving mms as well.
My friend on iphone sent me a picture and i get a Message size:XXX, Expires:date/time and then a "download" window so you press it but i end up with a picture failed to download when i try it.
