    I've got a Samsung Galaxy s3 4G LTE with US Cellular.
    Let me say i've had a rough road with the s3 since I upgraded about 2 weeks ago. They've already had to DOA 2 S3's. :(


    Here's my problem with the current one i have (I'm sure it should be a simple fix):
    My contacts pictures on my Message Threads homepage (the main text page) aren't showing up. They show everywhere else, on my contacts list, when i make and recieve calls, just not in my text threads.

    How can I fix this problem? Both of my other S3's didn't have this issue.


    Here's what i've tried:
    *Reset Phone.
    *Updated phone by *228
    *Re-did "my contacts backup"
    *Uninstalled facebook and re-installed it.
    *Removed facebook as an account in my contacts and added it back again.


    After doing this, I'm still not showing contact pictures in my text threads.

    Guys just read a previous post which sorted problem. Because when you text the phone defaults to SIM contact first which do not have images saved to them. I deleted my SIM contacts and problem solved. I deleted them by going to contacts and searching for a name which bought up both entries as before only phone contacts were showing.

    U were just too polite instead of just sayin in lamens terms :) I've not had this issue with other phones so didn't even think about the SIM at first. Even the guy in t mobile shop didn't know what to do. Also being a newby to having a decent phone I'm a bit lost without a manual lol

    Hi all,

    I had the same problem and the 'delete the SIM entries' did the trick!
    Thanks :)
