I've been getting MMS pics of the kids from my wife's phone (not an iphone) for a while, and they look great on my iPhone 4 screen. The good ones I save to Photos.

As of today, the new ones still look great on the screen, but when I save them the quality drops significantly. I've also tried emailing one to myself, but the quality was very low that way as well.

I've also noticed that I can't tap-to-open these newly saved pics from MMS from the Camera Roll album. In the past I have been able to. I can view them if I open another pic and flip through the album until I get to that one.

Any thoughts? Am I missing a setting about saving media from MMS? Is this a result of the recent update?

Thanks for any help!

    Yes! My iPhone started doing this after the 4.1 update. I frequently save mms photos and post them on my twitter feed. I'm using the exact same procedure as always, but it now appears to be saving the thumbnail instead of the image (the saved pictures are very small and cropped or resized to a square aspect.

    Keep hoping for an update to the Messages app...gonna have to turn in my "Apple Fanboi" decoder ring if this keeps up
