Help with animated gif messages
I can't seem to get animated GIFS with music as a SMS or a MMS to play. They are sent from people with phones like the Razor, LG, Envy etc. on the same network as mine ( Verizon ). When I get the message it will show the GIF for about 1 second then it dissapears, then the music plays. It will also give me the option to open the attachments or slides but still not GIFS. I can get Video messages from anyone and the videos plays fine. In the past when I opened one of these messages it would kill the audio on my phone and I would have to hard reboot for my phone to work even though I could still receive SMS and MMS messages, just the audio on the phone died. I was told the new OS 4.5 would correct this. The only thing it fixed was now if I get a animated GIF message it still does not play but my phone does work and I don't have to reboot. Is there a setting I need to change or is this not supported? I have 2 Curves 8330 OS 184.108.40.206 BIS on Verizon with the unlimted BB plan.
save the gif in your pictures folder... from there you can view it in full
Also when downloading the attachment sometimes it will save as a jpg file. Not sure if you can rename with the filename extension. Seems as I was able to when I had the problem. Of course it doesn't end your playing them together problem. I just watch the image then listen to the sound and if its a joke or funny you should be able to merge the 2 in your head lol. I know its annoying but I haven't yet found a way to fix it either. Good luck.
