    Did you press anything when the photo arrived?

    Just did a bit of Googling and came up with this
    Blue speech bubbles are messages that used Apple's iMessage tool. Green speech bubbles are for messages that used your carriers standard SMS. iMessage only works between apple i-devices, while SMS will work with any phone capable of SMS. iMessage and SMS are two fundamentally different ways to send messages, but they are both seamlessly integrated into the message tool.
    Could be a clue as to if the iMessage is being sent Apple to Apple or SMS. I may be totally wrong but I guess it is worth a try.

    I'm at a loss, both iPad and iPhone keep pictures when received and sent in the message stream. If I send a picture from my phone it shows up on my iPad in the message stream as sent by me and the same if I send from the iPad I see it on the phone. I tried digging through settings in case something was adjustable, maybe in restrictions as I don't have them enabled and could not check.

    Hi and thanks for the replies. This is from my sons iPod touch to my ipad so its not an issue of is it SMS or Imessage. I have checked Restrictions and they are all turned off. If I send him a picture it arrives on his iPod fine and if he sends a picture it arrives fine on my iphone, its just the iPad where it arrives then instantly vanishes. All very strange, I have tried Googling and cannot find anything relevant.
    I just wish there was a way to have Whatsapp on the iPad then I wouldn't have to worry anymore! Cheers all

    Is it still under warranty? If so it would be worth having Apple check it over to see what the problem is. Rare, but it could be a hardware problem. I appreciate what you say about Whatsapp but the point is something that should be working isn't. Daft question but have you tried a full reset of your ipad? Another thing, has this issue always been the case and if not when did it start happening? I am afraid you may have to do a lot of detective work and start eliminating possible causes. Good luck.

    Absolutely. At this point a Genius may be your best bet as I don't think many have seen this - you may be the first.
