    Did you add your details in 'My Profile'?

    Contacts - menu - more -My Profile

    Ah, that is how it works in my LG

    It should work if you have a contact entry with your photo, plus your phone number.

    If not, how about this:

    Or, you can just make a new contact with your own name, number and photo. Worked for me. :)

    The correct way (which worked for me) is to have your google profile and syncing your contacts between google contacts and your phone.
    Update your photo in the google profile and it gets updated in your phone. I have changed my photo twice and it got changed upon syncronization. Also for all my contacts (who have google profile), pic gets updated as soon as they change it.

    Dunno if you guys are still looking for a solution to this problem but i had he same trouble and this is the method i used to fix it. (google nexus one, 2.3.4)

    Go to settings>about phone>status

    Under the section my phone number, if it has multiple numbers or has 'unknown' listed as mine did you need to change this to the number you are currently using.

    To do this you need to use another phone that can edit the my number field.
    I hear iphones can do this but i personally used my old Sony Ericsson W810i.
    The option was in the phonebook under options>special numbers but you may also try looking in the regular settings if its not there. Most older phones should be able to do this.

    From there you put the sim back into your android phone. Now that the phone can tell what number is yours you simply create a contact named Me with your phone number and apply a picture to the contact. This picture should now show up in the messaging threads.

    Hope this helps.

    I have this problem too, and I tried everything. I really don't know what to do. Of course it is a minor problem, it's just annoying!

    You need to make sure your contact is on the phone and not the sim to put in a picture you want..........Also i found that being on facebook that if i put the persons proper name and not a nickname it will insert their facebook profile picture on its own....I have the Sync for facebook set to "on" in "Accounts & Sync" in the settings menu.....But remember you need to have the persons proper name and not nickname for this one......

    HTC Desire S.
    I go to people - then at the top is "Me". There's an edit button which does nothing, and if I hold the line down I get the options to edit, or send. Edit does nothing.

    Any thoughts how to get my profile up to date? I don't use Google for syncing.

    Hey guys, I am using the phone above and also have the same problem. I have made my profile on the phone, then changed it from my name to "Me", still nothing. I have made a profile on my gmail (google account) and updated pic, still nothing. I have added my phone number under contacts under my name, then changed to "Me", still nothing. When my hubby gets home from work tonight I am going to try and put my sim card into his iphone, as going by the posts above iphone should have an option to add my phone number to my sim. I will repost and let all know whether or not this is successful. Thanks for all the advice above :rolleyes:

    Hey guys, I am pleased to report that I was able to write my number into my sim on my partners iphone. I then placed my sim back into my phone and checked to see if my phone number was written in there under phone settings, which it was. I then sent a message and my image came up beside my message, which is the image I added to my profile on the phone. Not one from google, gmail, or by adding myself as a contact. Thanks for the help above and I hope others will read this and be successful too :)

    add a note for my top post. i think i found a faster way to add your pic in the me spot just go into your contacts to voice mail hit your page botton on your cell phone and the edit contact will pop up and there you go add your pic or whatever..... i think on androids you the owner aka is me so and pics or editing has to be done in the voice mail contact settings hope this helps

    Try going to: Contacts - Menu - More - "My Name Card" - Menu - Edit Contact

    You should be able to edit and add a photo like you would if you were adding a new contact.
