    DROID BIONIC no ability to save photos that have been texted and other photo problems

    Raptor55

      Hello,

      I am new to this forum but I am very frustrated with my DROID BIONIC. Specifically, I have found that when I receive a photo in a text message, I have no options for the photo - I cannot save it, I cannot send it to anyone else.....

       

      Also, I do not want to see other people's photos on my phone and I have turned off that option but I still get one photo from FB showing up on my gallery. I only want to see my photos!

       

      Additionally, I used to have a DROID GLOBAL 2 with all kinds of photos and downloaded music but I cannot get it transferred over to my new phone. Help!!!

          Remove the SD Card from the Droid Global 2 and place in PC card reader adn copy all images off the card and then plug the Bionic with the USB and Pull Down Status Bar and switch to Mass Storage and then go to PC Computer area and open the Storage Drive added and copy data to the location you choose....  

           

          If you have issues with Bionic you can pull its card out and place in PC Card reader and copy data that way...
