    Is it possible and how do I do it? I guess I never tried before because I came across the situation today and there seems to be no way to do it. Help?

    Along those same lines, I should just be able to forward the e-mail with the video it did not forward, just the words did. Is it because the file is 11 Mb possibly? I could do it from my PC but not my iPhone.

    Jeez, Mail's handling of attachments needs a serious revamp!

    Oddly enough, I thought I saw an article online last week that explained how to save a video attachment to an OS5 device - but I can't recall where. Had something to do with saving it to 'Camera Roll' in Photos....

    As for forwarding the video - it all comes back to Mail's (lack of) support of attachments and how it handles the ones it can cope with. Yeah, size probably had something to do with - likely a 'feature' within the OS as to prevent you from racking up data costs. Just guessing here...

    I'm unsure how to save a vid also to the iPhone.

    But, one thing i can point out that Bazza said, & makes complete sense. Blackberry also has a limit of how much you can send pic/vid/file size wise. I would think prob all of the platforms do, so in regards to the 11mb file Ringfinger that you were trying to send, its prob too big.

    It seems we can save pics but not vids. Makes no sense.

    I've saved videos, without a problem on my 4S. All I have to is press my finger on the video file, after it's downloaded and I get a pop-up with the option to save video. I do it all the time.

    Nope, does not work. Maybe because it is a .3gp file format?

    Maybe it was because of file format? I did get a .wmv file as well and it was 12.5 MB and that would not save either.

    Yeah, iPhone plays MP4 format. You can use a video converter on your home Mac or PC and then send to iPhone for storage and playback but none that actually convert on the iPhone itself that I know of.

    I am guessing if the video is in a file format that the iPhone doesn't play you wont be able to save it.

    Yeah, but it will play it. That's the issue. I am so confused.
