If you have a windows computer or boot camp you can use the program stated here: Extract And Save Images From GIF Animations With Animated GIF Frame Extractor
If not i'm not too sure. But i'm sure someone else will come along with an answer

With quicktime pro, open the gif and resave as a .mov. In photoshop Import frames to layers. Also , depending on how the gif was created preview can open it in seperate frames.
