    Been trying to figure this out and searching didn't help...

    My dad has sent me a video from his 3G S to mine via Gmail. I can watch the video, obviously, just fine. I am trying to save it to my photo album, just like a picture. But I do not have the option. Am I missing something easy here? It seems like there should be some way to save an emailed 3G S video from my email on the iPhone, but I cannot figure it out. Any help?

    Thanks! :)

    You'd think you'd be able to, like with pics, but you'll have to log into Gmail on your computer, save the attachement, and put it on the phone via iTunes. So annoying..

    You are able to do this with 3.1 but not 3.0.

    3.1's turning into the most expected release since... 3.0.

    Ah, OK. So that's one of the new features of 3.1 then. That's cool. Is that coming out to all us non-devs anytime soon? :)

    Had this problem yesterday. I had some videos I took with the 3GS and restored my phone. I emailed them and found out you could not save them to your phone. I was like wow - that's dumb.

    Good to know it's getting fixed.
