My son is with Vodafone and is using aLG android phone. He complains that when he receives a photo as a MMS it appears on his phone as a video clip ie when the picture displays, there are the usual pause, play and stop buttons below the image.
Anyone know how to get it to show without these video controls?

Thanks.

It is treating images in an MMS message like a slideshow. There is no way around this.

I will assume the phone has Android 2.3 or earlier, it was fixed in later versions where having only a single image in the message wouldn't trigger this behaviour.

As above its a slide show as you can add more than one picture per MMS sent depending on total size
