    You are talking about on the Pre? Cuz Palm has stated animated gifs are NOT supported on the Pre.

    Not all gifs are animated. The phone does support GIF but not animated ones.

    I hope it will in the not so distant future. Older phones I used to have always played animated text msgs and the likes.

    Can't be a webkit limit cause Google Chrome runs gifs just fine.

    I don't know how many times I'll have to post this before everyone realizes it, but the Pre absolutely DOES support animated .GIF files!!! The phone's web browser will not play them with animation for some reason, but you can embed them into an application on the phone and they will display fine. If you don't believe me, go grab the WxRadar homebrew app, which pulls animated .GIF radar images from a government web server and displays them fine.....

    Not sure which Animated Gifs are broken, because I'm using some small ones for the new word list display in Word Whirl and they are working great.

    I created them in GIMP on Ubuntu using GIF optimization.
    Your Pre wants Word Whirl from the App Catalog.

    It told me.

    Yea, I'm sure he's talking about on the Pre. I have this exact same thing, too. When I'm in a text message and someone has an AIM account and it shows their buddy icon, it's animated with no problems. On top of that, in the contacts list if they have an animated icon for their AIM screen name, it's animated as well.
