    Default how to attach a attachment to a reply email

    I came from Blackbery and Droid sending a attachment right from my composed email was easy as pie.
    How do you do it with an Iphone HELP Please

    First, I realize that the option to add an attachment to an email reply is not officially supported, but I'm hoping there's clever way to do it.

    I've found a bunch of ways to send attachments if I'm creating a new message, it's just the reply option where I'm missing the functionality. IT WAS SO EASY ON BLACKBERRY AND A DROID.
    WHY NOT ON A IPHONE

    Lets say its a picture.

    Open the picture hit the little curved arrow and you will get a menu to send as message or email and some others send in email.

    You can not open a new email and attach like on a blackberry don't know why .. You have to go to what you want to email then select email and it will attach it then select who you want to email

    That's one of the things I miss the most from my jailbreak. Just adding attachments from the email.

    and to attach other types of applications like documents you have to use third party programs.. I use air sharing it works well for attaching documents that I send out all the time..

    Good to know.

    I also recently made the switch from BB and this is driving me up the wall. I wish that it could be done from the native email app.

    It is absolutely stupid Apple doesn't allow attachments. My guess is because there is no official file system support.

    They re released it yesterday. Not a great app I'm thinking I'm sticking with the native email app.

    Default sending attachments

    I wanted to attach a photo after replying to an email.
    so i went to photos, selected the photo and selected the photo then hit 'email photo' this brings up an email with the photo attached. Here went into copy mode selected "all" made the copy. Now I went back to the original mail and pasted the copy. The "reply" email sent the photo as an attachment.

    this way you can send multiple photos in one email. It is not convenient but doable.

    Note you have to erase the multiple "sent from my iphone" sign offs that appear or you could select the photo instead of 'all"

    The app only allows a picture to be attached.
