How can I email animated GIFs to my cell phone?

tracy June 6, 2011

I can receive animated GIF picture mail. However, when I get something animated in my email and I want to send it to my cellphone, so I can forward it to my friends, the animated GIF is a still pic instead of doing the animation it is supposed to.

How do I fix this, so that it shows up properly, so people can get a good laugh from the GIF I am trying to send? I mean literally from my computer to my cell.

    what I do is right click on the Gif image "SaveAs" then save it to My Pictures and then attach it to a email and send it to your phone. Once your phone has it save the picture and then you can either send it to someone or do what you want. I have so many saved on my phone for different Holidays and I send them as Greetings to my friends. Hope this helped you.

    They just showed up as still pics on my phone. Once they were sent out, the animations kicked in. A recipient sent it back to show that it works normally. Just my phone being picky, I guess. I feel so stupid for posting this to begin with. Thank you all.
