I've read others say that assigning contact photos on the phone will solve this, but I'm afraid to say that this never seems to stick for me.
Perhaps if you use Facebook profile photos for all it is better, though.
Well I don't use Google contacts. Almost all of my contacts were imported from Verizon's backup service and that doesn't save the photo associated. I have gone through and added photos to the contacts I want, but I was a little surprised that unlike my old enVee Touch I couldn't crop a photo to have just a certain portion show for the contact photo.
And if I use a high quality image for the contact photo, it seems to automatically shrink it to a very small size so when the person calls the picture on the caller ID is very pixelated. Not a biggie, but still a tiny bit annoying that such a nice phone doesn't do something as well as a much older multimedia phone could do.
