    anyone else seeing that the pictures you attach to people, saved in their contacts, are low quality? i have the widget for favourites on one of my screens, those pics are really pixelated. They are each created however from a higher rez camera photo, yet show up pixelated on the saved contacts photo.

    When I get a call, or call a contact with a photo also. The picture that appears in the center of the phone is pixelated. Anyone know a way to get these higher quality?

    For me, they're not pixelated. They're basically crystal clear. Maybe you should try taking off the photos and putting them back on again? I'm not really sure how to resolve your situation.

    Mine are pixely too. I made sure they're all jpegs. I reinstalled the widget. The pictures are clear at first but after a few minutes they become pixely.

    If you are syncing your contacts to google that's why. As soon as they sync google lowers the resolution to 96x96.

    thanks, this was driving me crazy. not only does google resize to 96x96 but they heavily compress it. i tried resizing the pics myself to 96x96 and uploading them to gmail contacts directly but they still require you to make a selection and they recompress. no way to get decent looking thumbnails from what i can tell. poor way to save a few bits. sync off!

    How do you resolve this issue? I have completely removed all my contacts, my google account and my facebook account then re-added the fbook account... and still the same pictures that frankly look like diarrea... are they stored locally somewhere? Whats the solution?
