    My apologies if this has already been asked, but I didn't seem to find a defnitive answer in the forums.

    On the Eris on 1.5, is there a way to replace the default avatar for contacts with no photo (the gray silhouette icon) to a custom graphic? I have searched the file structures and didn't find anything that I thought was the correct image.

    In the contact edit screen click on the graphic in the upper left ... you can then change it

    No, I don't think you can change what the default avatar looks like. What you could do is download or take the image you want and set that as their avatars, but you would have to do that individually for each one.

    I'm sure once it is rooted, you would be able to change that :D

    Oops, it appears I missunderstood the question ... bjf88 is correct, you cannot change the default green android

    Unless you knew how to modify app resources, no I'm afraid.
