    When I get pictures by mail into my iPhone 3G and then save these pictures, they get very unsharp and compressed. Is there anything that I can do to fix this problem? Perhaps with an app from App store or Cydia, or something? Any ideas?

    I thing the iphone automatically crops and shrinks them so they display on your screen better or so it thinks. I download a full blown wallpaper to use as a background on my mac. when I got home and synced the wallpaper looked like crap and was not the size it should have been. I know this because I downloaded the same wallpaper from the same place on my mac and it came out fine.

    Maybe someone can find a way to disable this.

    Yes, I know that I can open the files on my computer and sync them into the iPhone, but if I get a photo by mail into my iPhone, I would like to save them into the cameraroll in their original size. And I suppose that is not possible fron the discover.app?
    One of the reasons why they did'nt put MMS into the iPhone, is that sending photos etc by mail is better. Yes, that is true, but then it should work...
