Go SMS picture downloads
Sunday 26th of August 2012
I'm using Go SMS on a Samsung Galaxy S and I can never find the actual download folder when I save a picture that's been texted to me. It doesn't go to my "gallery". What I end up having to do is open the Messaging app on my phone and saving the picture and then going back to Go SMS to continue my conversation. When I connect to my computer, I see the SMSdownload folder, but I can't find it on my actual phone. How do I change the location of downloaded pictures? Thanks!

How do I save pitures sent in a text msg
Friday 07th of September 2012
Looked around here and did not see these issues answered.. Using the stock SMS app, I receive pictures via text msg but I cannot find an option to save it to my gallery (Or anywhere for that matter). Only option is to "Set picture as". Is it possible to save pics from text msgs and if so how.. Also, I get some pics where I can just touch them and I can resize on the fly etc (The ones I cannot save) ... and some I get when you touch them, it kinda looks like a video player pops up with the pic and a 5-6 second play bar runs left to right like I am playing a video clip but it is a picture only. Anyone know what type of picture that is and why I am getting those? Very annoying.. Any help with these two questions/issues would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Help with Go sms pro
Saturday 31st of August 2013
I just found out that SlimBean does not send pictures at all. I searched here and XDA and all I've found is to use go sms pro. So I dl go sms pro from the app store and I feel real stupid because I can't figure out how to use the darn thing. It does not have any of my contacts from my phone and when I try and add a contact it does not save it. I tried sending a regular text and a mms but nothing goes through. I've searched here, XDA and google search for a how to but the ones I've seen show the contact list is updated already, I can't find a settings menu anywhere in go sms at all.
Saving Images from text
Saturday 15th of February 2014
I have been using Hangouts as my SMS for quite some time now. I never had a problem saving pictures from the app at full size but recently I changed my default SMS (hello SMS) and now when I save images to my phone the pictures are A LOT smaller when saved to phone. I went to the default messaging app that came with the One, same thing. I then switched back to Hangouts to see if its the app and it saves the image perfectly and in the correct size... any idea how I can get my other SMS to save my images fully like Hangouts does? Thanks for your time,Tim
Savings Pictures From Hangouts

Just switched to AT&T and got me a Nexus 5. I'm currently using Hangouts for SMS and can't figure out how to save pictures from there. My father in law sent me a few of my daughter and I see no capability to save the images. Is there a way to get that done? Thanks!

Large sms thread in HideSMS
Thursday 03rd of July 2014
I've been using KeepSMS (an app that hides texts and requires a pin to access it and doesn't appear on the recent apps list, etc. Many use it to text secretly but I've been using it to avoid the thread limit of 5000 on the stock sms app). I neglected to consider that I may need to back them up at some point.. Now I want to do a factory reset but I have no clue how to back them up first (KeepSMS does not have any ability to backup/restore, I checked), and I need to save them. I can unhide them in order to use SMS Backup and Restore, but what will happen to the ones that are over 5000 messages in length? One thread is almost 20,000 messages - will the stock app delete them or will they be in groups of 5000? I have been searching for hours online trying to figure out what the file might be called where these msgs are saved so I can just copy that folder to my SD card but I am only finding info on the KeepSafe app (for hiding pictures). Really hope someone can help.. Thanks!
