I have an iPhone 3GS. I just did the software update to iOS5. My sister took a cute video of my kid and sent it to me on iMessage. I tried to save it to my phone so I could upload it to the computer and/or facebook, and now I can't find it. It is not in my camera roll or in my iCloud.

So the question is....where is the file and why can't i find it?

Check in your 'Videos' app; it should be saved in there.
