Default No contact picture on lock screen when receiving SMS message

Hi guys,

So I've just upgraded from HTC One X to the HTC One and so far it is awesome.

On the HTC One X when I received a text the contact picture would show with the message on the lock screen, but I can't seem to get it to work on the HTC One (The contact pictures are there).

Any ideas?

Do you still see the message?

I don't get the picture either as I think it's meant to be that way to blend in with the minimalistic look.

Works for me. I am on Sprint, 4.1.2, using a Nova launcher and Handcent SMS for messages. Pictures from my contact show right up from the locked screen.

Any change you have duplicate contacts for their phone number and Facebook account (or wherever the picture comes from)? If so, just open up their contact and from the top right menu choose "Link".

Thanks for the reply guys. Seems very strange that some people get them and some don't. I've checked all the links and made sure there's no duplicates etc. It worked perfectly fine on my HTC One X.

you're not using the sense launcher or messaging app so it doesn't apply to you.

Launcher shouldn't matter, but the MMS app might.

I'm having the same issue actually - the productivity lockscreen is functional enough but pictures would be cool. Option's checked and all that.
