I cannot get my pictures to move from a text to my SD CARD on my Samsung Galaxy Ace phone. I have tried to hold my finger on it but the pop up box does not give me the option to move it to my card

When your receive your picture attached to your Text message you should click on download, and you should save it directly to your SD card
It does not give me that option :-( Only options are delete message, lock message, attach items forward and view message details

Hi carolyn ,
your best option is to use one of those File manager application like "Es file manager". you will have just to select the picture you want to move, long press it and select move to ....
I downloaded file manager but can't figure out how to use it

I know with some devices if you;
1) Go to your camera
2) Hit settings
3) Tap storage
4) Then save to SD instead of phone storage
My SD works fine for pictures I take, just not for the ones text to me

Weird! and strange, so when you receive an MMS attached to your SMS, and your SD is mounted and was selected as main storage media to store your pictures, then you click on download, does it say save it or not?
I haven't done that. I usually just leave the picture in the feed and than when I want to upload pictures they are normally on my card...this time they are not :-(
My phone is a Samsung Galaxy Ace Model number GT-SS830d Android Version-2.3.4

Ok i fixed it on my end!!!!! Hopefully this one will help you.
When the picture is received click (do not hold) the photo.
It will say "Subject untitled" and have a play button. Ignore all that.
Hit your options button witch is next to your home screen.
Then click "Attached items"
After that click on the time and date that it was sent just by the little arrow next to it.
Tap save and then you have succesfully saved the image you have selected onto your SD card!!
