    I tried saving photos using either iPad's mail app or accessing my mail via browser and either way when I save a photo to my iPad it only shows up in Photos as a grey jpg icon?? I can't open it or even delete it.. Anyone else fun into this??
    Thank you in advance...

    Is it possible you are saving pictures of a grey jpeg icon? :p

    Sorry, no problems here on my iPhone 4.

    On the screen with all the photos showing click on the arrow next to slideshow. you will see a red delete, click on the photos and touch delete!

    Thank you.. Worked great and even allowed me to choose all 7 grey jpg files at once and delete them..

    Still confused on why all photos taken and emailed to my iPad from my WP7 phone which are all in jpg format come up as a grey jpg icon??
