    so far my picture ID stinks. It looks like its been blown up or jpg decompressed to 5%. Is there a way to have them being dispalyed all nice and clear ? SOme of the caller ID are pulled of form FB profile account and some of them are from the phone itself...

    is that normal ?

    Sadly yes, as far as I'm aware.

    Depending on the size of the picture you are going to set for your contacts ID depends on how Fuzzy it ends up when you get a call from them. And how small or large you you make the ID image when chosing which part of the image to make their ID Photo.

    If you have a LARGE MegaPixle image, the ID won't be as fuzzy.

    But in all, it's going to be fuzzy regardless. It is quite annoying.

    really annoying indeed. I wonder why HTC didn't think of that ?? Wouldn't it be one of the most used features on the phone ? It is a PHONE after all.

    I am using a pretty large picture take from a DSLR for one of my contacts and it still pretty fuzzy.

    Others have said a 200px X 200px picture will stay sharp ... the phone doesnt have to re-size it then

    Yeah but if its let say a 1600 x 1080 or so res picture, wouldn't one think that if the picture got cropped/resized that it would still be clear and not fuzzy?

    Crazy how far we've come in cell phone tech. and yet little simple stuff like a pic ID is still not corrected.
    :p
    oh well... a small price to pay for such a great phone!

    My eris pulls all the ID photos from facebook and I don't think there is any problem at all with the picture quality

    Any ideas to improve photo quality, cause even the photo used from the camera phone comes out fuzzy/blurry.

    You would think so ... but it gets fuzzy when the phone re-sizes it to 200x200. I did test the theory tonight, and I can say that a 200x200px photo still gets blurry.
