Re: Xperia x10 mini - cant save pictures from mms received

Thanks so much for figuring this out, as that was a very annoying problem.

So i now have the Handcent SMS App as suggested, and i love it, it works great and shows the discussions far better than without the app. I have a problem though....

When i receive a message, and i open it, it gives me the option of do i want to open the message with Handcent SMS or open it with standard messaging. Each time, i choose Handcent SMS as this is what i want to view the message with, however it does not get rid of the envelope icon (the 'you have a text message' icon) unless i go back into the message and open it using the standard android Messaging function.

Ideally i want the option to be able to use either or, to disappear. I just want all messages to be opened by Handcent, and i want the Envelope icon to disappear when i have read the message.

When i do come across the option to choose Handcent or Messaging, there is a little downward arrow, that when i click it, it says Use By Default For This Location, and directs me to Home Settings>Applications>Manage Applications.

I still cant figure out how to solve my problem though.

Does anyone know how to help?

Thanks

Scott

To get rid of the double notification, you need to disable the notifications for the stock messaging system.  To do that, open the application, press the menu button (the real button on the bottom left), then select 'Settings', scroll down to 'Notifications' and remove the tick from the box.

It is very easy to save a MMS Message from XPERIA X10:

Open the Message and touch the picture by 2 or 3 seconds and you will see SAVE PICTURE.

Re: Xperia x10 mini - cant save pictures from mms received

HA! I got it!
1) Go to messages
2) Find desired attachment (a.e picture, video, etc.)
3) Press and hold attachment untill window appears (message options)

4) select copy attached to SD

...you can then go to your mediascape-photo-album-dowload, and it should appear there

hope this helps everyone Slightly smiling Face

Re: Xperia x10 mini - cant save pictures from mms received

Thx so much for the advice about holding on the image - yes, up popped a menu allowing me to save the photo sent by text. After all the obvious things failed!!

 

Can't BELIEVE the Sony Xperia people didn't know that.

 

I have literally cleared every app of this phone and every photo and every unwanted text msg and I still have no memory on it. I can't take a single photo as a result - hence why someone had to send them to me y text. I don't know how to de-fraggle it so have to carry a camera around separately!

 

It is the crappiest phone of all time. Really un-user friendly and inadequate. Constantly crashing. Have to put every call on speaker now because of the crackle - I haven't had the phone THAT long! The predictive text drives me mad - why default to the second word that comes up and not the first one?? So annoying. And a multitide of other inadequacies. It's embarrassing to use. Surprised at Sony for coming up with something that bad. I'll never use an Android again.

 

But at least I got my photos off the phone!

@LimaOscar This phone is years old and back then apps were small which would of left lots of room for other apps and data but times move on and apps get bigger because they can do more meaning less room on the device for other things
