I have a picture that was sent to me from a friend via text message. I need to get the date and timestamp off the picture. I don't have original.

Which application are you using?

You would need to save the image somewhere else to examine it's contents.

If the name of the picture is a date and time then that might be the information you're looking for, or it could just be the date it was sent via text. Otherwise I'd guess that any images sent through MMS text messages have all camera data stripped from them as they are resized smaller.
