How do you turn off automatic link sharing? Every time I try to send a pic through text it sends it through link sharing instead of sending the actual pic. I tried googling but couldn't find the answer. PLEASE help! This is driving me crazy!

omg this took me sooo long to find, was also driving me nuts!

When you go into the message and then select the images button to choose a photo, look at the bottom right of the screen. There is the little link share logo in light blue. This is a button, just press it and walla!!! So glad its gone!!

If I had to guess, I'd say for the same reason they don't let users know that when you install a major update to the OS on any of their mobile devices, many, if not all apps are set back to factory defaults. This was the case on my Active 2 watch; the latest Tizen update turned of location tracking (the default) and it took me a while to figure this out. Now I am conditioned to check all my critical apps after they send out any update.
