    Hi i have a small problem to which i couldn't find a solution on the web or this forum: i cannot set a contact icon (picture). I know the steps:
    - Edit contact
    - Menu - Add icon
    - Select picture
    - Crop and Save
    - the chosen photo now appears in the top left rectangle instead of the android logo
    - Menu -> Done

    the second i hit Done and return to the contact view, or contact list, the photo dissapears and is replaced by the default grey logo.

    I have cupcake on my G1, and have not rooted or otherwise modified it.
    I don't want to sync any contacts with my google account, as i have a lot of people in gmail that do not have phone numbers and vice versa.

    I just want to have photos for the people i manually add in my contact list.

    Can anyone help? Thanks

    PS. I've read somewhere that the contact needs to have a gmail address in order to display the picture, but i've tried contacts with and without gmail and no change.

    I also noticed that the contacts seem to be glitchy when you don't sunc with google.
    the solution is to allow it sync with google.
    just sort out your google contacts into groups and only sync a certain group.
