    Ok, here's my issue at hand. First off, I've been a Windows Mobile user since before WM6 so I'm not a newbie to the ecosystem however, I have never until this day had to save a video from an email attachment or through MMS to my phone. Just never really had to. Now, I have an L920 and I was emailed and texted a video today that I would like to save on my device. Preferably from the email attachment since the MMS video is very low quality (I'm guessing from some sort of formatting/compression). Is there seriously no way to do this in today's day and age of WP8 without some crazy unsatisfactory Sky Drive workaround that I have briefly heard about?

    Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated as a Bing search brings up nothing for me and a quick search of this forum seems to not bring up anything either.

    If there is not a way, while kind of primitive, so be it.

    Not sure if anyone will see this or not but basically is what is being said here is that if someone sends me a video in a text message there is no way to save the video? I.e. my sister sends me videos from her iPhone of my niece and nephew and on my old Android I could save the video to my phone or memory card. Is there not a way to do this? By the way I just got a Lumia 822 yesterday...thanks!

    Same issue. I got a video from email and whatsapp app. In both the cases i am able to download the video and see it. But i am not able to save it. Is there any way around? Also, the space is used by the internal memory of phone and not the SD card. so, it fills up quite fast. Also, after deleting the particular email which had video, the space was still used by the phone and the space didn't turned free. This is a serious limitation.

    I dont understand why WP has sooooooooooo many restrictions in every small thing, not sure why it was so difficult to add a save video feature from emails. Feeling very disappointed.
